Entrust Datacard joins ISPN


Entrust Datacard has joined the Infineon Security Partner Network (ISPN), which is part of Infineon Technologies.

The ISPN comprises associated and preferred security partners who are proven experts in security consulting, security solution provisioning, electronic design, systems integration and trust services management. The new partnership will apply the Entrust Datacard ioTrust Security Solution that uses identity-based technology to help securely connect the people, applications and devices that power the connected world. The tiered software uses cryptographic technology to provide identity issuance, management and data security of connected things within industrial environments.

As a player in Trusted Platform Modules (TPM), Infineon enables customers to create hardware-based security solutions for IoT projects. Infineon OPTIGA TPM (Trusted Platform Module) security chips provide protection for critical data and processes. The technology enhances the security of data and communication between IoT devices, embedded systems and cloud applications in industrial networks. When present, it provides a secured and trusted building block for application and device security.

“In applying an ioTrust security solution, customers can bridge their solution across TPM and non-TPM enabled solutions,” says Josh Jabs, vice president, Office of the CTO and general manager – IoT for Entrust Datacard. “We reduce the complexities of implementing the TPM protocols and provide developers with a single interface to develop their application against, when TPM is present.”

The ioTrust security solution provides a secure Endpoint Agent (EPA) which interfaces with the Infineon OPTIGA TPM to secure software elements such as keystores and application binaries. This EPA enables industrial customers to access secure identities to help ensure that all device/sensor/application interactions are cryptographically authenticated and authorised. Through the use of ioTrust Edge Gateways (EGW), the EPAs help ensure that devices are monitored and receive key and certificate management based on policy defined by the ioTrust Identity Authority. Entrust Datacard says that by joining the ISPN, its customers gain increased access to innovative technologies which reduce the constraints on time and resources associated with their IoT deployments.

“There is no single ‘best-fit’ solution for security in IoT applications. Each system design must account for multiple types of devices with varying compute capability and resources,” says Joerg Borchert, vice president, Chip Card and Security ICs for Infineon Technologies North America. “Entrust Datacard’s participation in the ISPN provides developers with tools to establish and maintain security by design throughout the application ecosystem.”
