Infineon delivers hardened security of IoT cloud localization services and AWS IoT Greengrass Hardware Security Integration

At AWS re:Invent 2018 this week, Infineon Technologies (FSE: IFX / OTCQX: IFNNY) announced the availability of hardened security solutions for Amazon Web Services (AWS) Internet of Things (IoT) Greengrass based on the OPTIGA™ family of hardware security solutions.

Infineon is one of the initial companies to offer a complete suite of solutions for hardening security across the spectrum of connected devices on AWS IoT, whether at the edge or at the endpoints. Infineon’s security solutions for the IoT comprise OPTIGA™ TPM 2.0 SLB9670 for edge applications and OPTIGA™ Trust X for endpoints.

AWS IoT Greengrass is software that lets users run local compute, messaging, data caching, sync, and machine learning (ML) inference capabilities for connected devices in a secure way. With AWS IoT Greengrass, connected devices can run AWS Lambda functions, keep device data in sync and communicate with other devices securely – even when not connected to the Internet.

“New reference designs from Infineon design will allow customers to effortlessly integrate AWS IoT solutions with Infineon’s microcontrollers and security chips,” said Joerg Borchert, Vice President of Digital Security Solutions at Infineon Americas. “This will allow for fast development times for hassle-free integration, offering enhanced security for IoT and Industry 4.0 devices connected to an AWS IoT Greengrass-enabled device instead of the cloud.”

Both new and existing AWS IoT Greengrass customers operating in a wide range of industries such as government services, healthcare and industrial manufacturing will benefit from the additional security solutions offered by Infineon and AWS.

The TPM 2.0 solution for the edge

Infineon’s Trusted Platform Module (TPM) SLB9670 features a fully TCG TPM 2.0 standard compliant module. The SLB9670 features a TCG-compliant SPI interface to facilitate easy integration with all leading micro architectures, offering application level security, secure SOTA (software-over-the-air) updates and TPM root of trust. The SLB9760 security controller can be mounted on an OPTIGA TPM2.0 Linux development board which integrates easily on Raspberry Pi® 3 boards.

The Optiga Trust X solution for endpoints

The OPTIGA Trust X security controller is a turnkey security solution for IoT devices. It is available as a ready-to-use Infineon evaluation board equipped with a 32-bit XMC4800 microcontroller. The compact XMC4800 is the market’s first-ever microcontroller to integrate an EtherCAT® node on an ARM® Cortex®-M controller with on-chip flash and analog/mixed signal capabilities, plus many other peripherals, with the benefit of the Arduino and Click Board compatible form factor.


As a leading supplier of TPMs, Infineon is shipping the OPTIGA TPM2.0 SLB9760 in volume production. More information on getting started is available at

The Evaluation Board XMC4800 IoT Amazon FreeRTOS Connectivity kit WiFi is also available. More information on getting started is available from Infineon at and on AWS at
