Together with its partners NXP, Invensense and Synopsys, Intrinsic-ID Addresses Growing Need for Securing the Internet of Things (IoT)
San Jose, California - Intrinsic-ID, a leading provider of Cyber Physical Security Solutions, is launching a series of new innovations aimed at securing the Internet of Things (IoT) with key partners at three major industry events. Intrinsic-ID will demonstrate joint offerings with Synopsys, Invensense and NXP at Mobile World Congress, the RSA conference and CeBIT.
At the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain, February 22-25, an integrated demonstration showing Intrinsic ID’s Physically Unclonable Function (PUF)technology running on Synopsys® ARC® EM Processor with SecureShield™ technology will be available in Synopsys’ suite, Hall 6 (6O1MR). Simultaneously, Intrinsic-ID will showcase the TrustedSensor™ solution, a secure sensor-based authentication system with InvenSense’s Firefly SoC with InvenSense in Hall 2 (2C16MR).
At the RSA conference in San Francisco, California, Intrinsic-ID will demonstrate the advantage of PUF-based key storage versus conventional key storage on NXP smart cards. Intrinsic-ID will be at the NXP booth (South Expo #S1547). From March 14 to 16, Intrinsic-ID will attend CeBit in Hannover, Germany and will demonstrate how to set up an end-to-end trustworthy semiconductor supply chain at the Intrinsic-ID booth in Hall 11.
IoT applications are driven by data gathered by endpoints in the field, which makes protecting endpoint devices and the data a critical factor. “We see a growing need to secure endpoints in the IoT space,” said Dr. Pim Tuyls, CEO of Intrinsic-ID. “By working closely with partners such as NXP, Invensense and Synopsys, we created an ultra-low-power implementation of our industry-Ieading PUF technology, which forms a trust anchor in the low and high-end chips, microcontrollers and sensors that drive the IoT market. From the factory where the chips are produced, up to the full end systems, we are able to provide IoT security.”
In cooperation with its partners, Intrinsic-ID’s PUF technology has been integrated into ultra-low power devices. Intrinsic-ID’s new products enable SoC developers to support security-sensitive transactions such as smart payment or secure communication with devices in the field (wearables, sensors, smart building appliances, etc.) without the cost or power consumption of a separate security processor core. Intrinsic-ID’s security solutions apply to both semiconductor manufacturers and OEMs.
Intrinsic-ID is a world leader in the field of Cyber Physical Security Systems as a provider of “Physical Unclonable Functions” (PUF). Using our patented PUF technology, secret keys and identifiers are reliably extracted from the physical properties of chips. Much like the electronic equivalent of a human fingerprint the PUF uniquely identifies and authenticates any electronic device. PUFs can be used for secure hardware key management, to establish a hardware root of trust or to protect the electronic supply chains against clones and counterfeits. Intrinsic-ID’s security solutions serve a wide range of markets: Embedded systems, IoT, Identification, automotive, communications, content distribution, pay TV, government and defense. Licensees include NXP, Altera, Microsemi, Mentor Graphics, Synopsys and Invensense.
Intrinsic-ID is a spin-off from Philips Electronics. The company is headquartered in San Jose, USA and has its R&D office in Eindhoven, the Netherlands. Learn more at
