Based on the Raspberry Pi platform, the kit accelerates prototyping, which is paramount for IoT device manufacturers.  

Per a company press release, features of the new kit include:

  • Common Criteria Certified EAL6+ (high) hardware security controller
  • Infineon true Zero Touch Provisioning and Secured and Certified Chain of Trust
  • Secured data storage and full X.509 certificate handling

These features can be easily employed, per the release. The only requirements for the integration of the kit are the OPTIGA Trust M and support software from Infineon, a Raspberry Pi board supplied by the customer and Zigbee Alliance’s open source reference software implementation of the Connect Home over IP standards.
