New STSAFE Secure Element from STMicroelectronics Provides Certified Solution for Asset Identification and Brand Protection

Geneva, February 17, 2020 – Introducing new features to secure data exchanges in increasingly aggressive contexts, the STMicroelectronics STSAFE-A110 Secure Element protects consumer and industrial connected devices in the Internet of Things (IoT), preventing the counterfeiting of genuine products by strictly assuring their authenticity.

STSAFE-A110 offers state-of-the-art certified protection and access to secure loading of cloud credentials to provide mass registration of IoT devices and ensure only authorized devices can access online services. This critical secured personalization can be performed at a secure ST factory at no extra cost for yearly quantities in excess of 5,000 units, drastically simplifying and protecting the manipulation of secret data during IoT devices manufacturing.

The device features an embedded secure operating system and is 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.

In addition, ST’s latest Secure Element is integrated with the STM32Cube development ecosystem to be quickly incorporated in new STM32 designs requiring an authentication and secure-connection capability. The X-NUCLEO-SAFEA1 expansion board jump-starts development and is ready to use with any STM32 Nucleo development board and free X-CUBE-SAFEA1 and X-CUBE-SBSFU software packages.

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

Offered in SO8N and DFN packages, the STSAFE-A110 is now available in samples, with volume production scheduled for the end of February 2020. For fast and easy evaluation, pre-personalized generic samples and STM32 expansion boards will also be directly available via eDistribution accessible on www.st.com.  For volume orders and personalization service, please contact your ST sales office.
