Vortrag: Infineon Blockchain Starter Kit
Storing blockchain user credentials on a computer or a cellphone is extremely risky as an attacker may identify and read out confidential information. This could even be done remotely – through software attacks.
Security can be enhanced by integrating a dedicated Hardware Security Module (HSM) into the device microcontroller. This separates critical operations and credential storage from other software operations and therefore provides robust protection against software attacks.
The highest possible security level can be achieved with a dedicated security controller for critical operations and credential storage. This security controller has additional countermeasures to protect against physical attacks.
With the Blockchain security 2Go starter kit Infineon provides for the very first time a new type of tool support. This helps blockchain system integrators to seamlessly access the highest standards of Infineons hardware-based security.
