To secure data exchanges in increasingly vulnerable online scenarios, the STSAFE-A110 Secure Element by STMicroelectronics protects the consumer and industrial Internet of Things (IoT) devices to prevent the counterfeiting of genuine products by ensuring their authenticity.

The device offers state-of-the-art certified protection and secure loading of credentials stored in the cloud to mass registration of IoT devices. Only authorized devices can access online services. This critically secure personalization drastically simplifies and protects the manipulation of secret data during IoT devices manufacturing.

The device features an embedded operating system that is secure and based on hardware that is certified to Common Criteria Evaluation Assurance Level 5+ (EAL5+). Each unit comes with a unique identification and X.509 certificates that aids secure device connection.

Typical applications for STSAFE-A110 include brand protection for components like consumables, accessories, or power-tool batteries and authentication of cloud-connected IoT devices such as vending machines, farming tools and systems, or environmental sensors.

Additionally, ST’s Secure Element is integrated with the STM32Cube development ecosystem to be immediately incorporated in new STM32 designs that require authentication and secure-connection capability. The X-NUCLEO-SAFEA1 expansion board quickens development and is ready to use with any STM32 Nucleo development board and software packages of X-CUBE-SAFEA1 and X-CUBE-SBSFU.

The new product is offered in SO8N and DFN packages with volume production now available from authorized ST sales office.
