Hsinchu Taiwan — Sep 27th, 2022 — PUFsecurity Corporation, a subsidiary of eMemory Inc., announced that its Crypto Coprocessor PUFcc had achieved PSA Certified Level 2 Ready. The test was executed by SGS Brightsight, an independent security evaluation laboratory approved by the PSA Certified program.
The PSA Certified framework is designed to ensure manufacturers incorporate security into the IoT devices design early in the design process and to provide practical implementation guidance, tools, and verification services accordingly. By adopting a PSA Certified IP, customers can save R&D resources and accelerate products to pass necessary safety certifications.
PUFsecurity’s Crypto Coprocessor, PUFcc, is the first security IP to achieve such recognition by passing all five tests applicable to IP. It includes the proprietary Hardware Root of Trust which is made of eMemory’s patented OTP and PUF technology, a complete set of NIST-certified crypto engine, and Riscure-certified anti-tampering design. By integrating with Arm Cortex-M33 and Corstone-201, PUFcc successfully passed the PSA Certified safety framework tests and verified the reliability in secure boot, secure storage, firmware update, secure boundary, and the crypto engine.
“It is important to have a unified security standard framework when thousands of companies in the market are developing IoT products. PSA Certified helps in building customer trust. It’s just like people would only buy cars with safety ratings.” says Sam Chung, Marketing Director at PUFsecurity. “That’s why we put in such effort to pass all IP applicable tests to make PUFcc become a trustworthy security IP choice for end products aiming for PSA Certified certifications.”
“We are pleased that PUFsecurity have selected SGS Brightsight for reaching this important milestone on their Crypto Coprocessor, PUFcc. We continue to work closely with PUFsecurity to ensure customers and partners’ security at all levels of development, starting from the design. Together, we are empowering the security of the IoT ecosystem.”, says Alex Rubert, Sales Manager at SGS Brightsight.
