With its new Blockchain Security 2Go starter kit, Infineon Technologies provides FinTechs and blockchain designers a fast and easy way to build hardware-based security into their systems.
The starter kit contains five NFC smart cards based on Infineon’s security controller with blockchain crypto features for several blockchains. Additionally, an open source android app for Ethereum and Smart contract examples is provided. The NFC smart cards help blockchain system designers to easily integrate hardware-based security and quickly develop first prototypes of the blockchain application. The security tokens – whether smart cards, dongles or solutions for mobile devices – allow users to securely generate their unique public and private key pairs, authenticate with PIN and sign their data and digital transactions. All the user credentials can be stored in the security controller and hence be protected from remote attacks on software or the micro-architecture and especially from physical attacks in case the token is stolen or lost.
In addition, Infineon and Xain are collaborating to use the AURIX microcontroller with integrated Hardware Security Module to enable blockchain applications in the car.
