Kudelski IoT Partners with Infineon to Enhance Smart Home Device Security with New Matter-Certified Solution

Enhancing Device Security and Simplifying Integration with Infineon's OPTIGA™ Trust M MTR and Kudelski's Certificate Service

CHESEAUX-SUR-LAUSANNE, Switzerland, and PHOENIX, AZ, USA, March 12, 2024 - Kudelski loT, a leader in digital security and loT solutions, and Infineon Technologies AG, a global semiconductor leader in power systems and loT, today announced a security solution with a Matter provisioning service for the smart home and smart building device ecosystems. Leveraging the cutting-edge Infineon OPTIGA™️ Trust M MTR Secure Element and Kudelski loT's Matter Certificate Service, this partnership simplifies the integration of the Matter standard into loT devices, enhancing their security, interoperability, and reliability.

The Matter standard, developed by the Connectivity Standards Alliance with contributions from over 600 companies, including Kudelski loT and Infineon, aims to revolutionize the smart home industry by ensuring devices work seamlessly together while maintaining the highest security levels. With the global number of smart home devices expected to reach 1.7 billion by 2030 (ABI Research 2023), the need for a streamlined ecosystem focusing on security, interoperability and simplicity has never been more critical.

The OPTIGA Trust M MTR is the latest configuration of lnfineon's OPTIGA Trust M, combining a Matter-certified Secure Element with a Matter provisioning service to streamline the development and deployment of Matter-compliant devices. This Secure Element not only enhances device security but also simplifies the integration process for manufacturers, allowing for faster time-tomarket and greater flexibility in product development.

Frederic Thomas, CTO of Kudelski loT, emphasizes the importance of this collaboration: "In the era of loT, security and interoperability are not just features but necessities. Through our partnership with Infineon and the integration of our Matter Certificate Service with the OPTIGA Trust M MTR, we're not only addressing the current challenges faced by loT product designers but also paving the way for a future where smart home devices are more secure, reliable, and easy to use. This is a leap forward in our mission to secure the Internet of Things."

The partnership also introduces a novel approach to device attestation, offering manufacturers the flexibility to assign Device Attestation Certificates (DAC) later in the production cycle. This process is facilitated by Kudelski loT, an approved Product Attestation Authority (PAA) by the Connectivity Standards Alliance, ensuring a secure and efficient pathway from chip manufacturing to device provisioning in the home.

Availability of the OPTIGA Trust M MTR Secure Element starts in March 2024, with samples and evaluation kits available now. Kudelski loT and Infineon are committed to providing comprehensive support to developers, from design-in application notes to extensive integration support and training on the security products, without the need for an NDA.
