Microchip and Intel Collaborate for Enhanced IoT Privacy and Security

End-to-End Security and Device Attestation are Crucial to Advancing the Internet of Things

CHANDLER, Ariz., Aug. 18, 2015 — (PRNewswire) — Microchip Technology Inc. (NASDAQ: MCHP), a leading provider of microcontroller, mixed-signal, analog and Flash-IP solutions, today announced a collaboration with Intel to implement Intel® Enhanced Privacy ID (Intel® EPID) technology into its products. Intel EPID is a sophisticated, proven approach to device authentication that provides both security and privacy for the on-ramp to the Internet of Things (IoT).

Microchip Technology Inc. is a leading provider of microcontroller, mixed-signal, analog and Flash-IP solutions, providing low-risk product development, lower total system cost and faster time to market for thousands of diverse customer applications worldwide. Headquartered in Chandler, Arizona, Microchip offers outstanding technical support along with dependable delivery and quality. For more information, visit the Microchip website at http://www.microchip.com.

At the Intel Developer Forum this week in San Francisco, attendees visiting Intel's IoT Community exhibit can view a demonstration of the Intel EPID Protocol running on Microchip's IoT Security Platform. For those not attending, more information on Microchip's collaboration with Intel is available online at http://www.microchip.com/EPID-081815a.

"Microchip has long recognized the importance of security in IoT applications," said Ian Harris, vice president of Microchip's Computing Products Group. "Collaborating with Intel to integrate its proven Intel EPID technology demonstrates Microchip's steadfast commitment to providing the very best IoT solutions, by working to enable designers with the safe and secure interoperation of their 'things' with Intel's devices, gateways and servers."

"By utilizing Intel EPID technology, Microchip's customers can maintain end-to-end security and privacy in their IoT products and services, which helps them to protect data from device to cloud, minimizes unauthorized access of endpoints and gateways, and will promote a common security framework for IoT platforms," said Lorie Wigle, general manager of Internet of Things Security at Intel.

As more devices connect—devices that carry information about our homes, our businesses, our communities and ourselves—the need is paramount for safe and secure communications that protect our data and our identities. Intel EPID provides authentication, allowing a service provider to verify that an end user belongs to a group authorized to access the service. It also helps protect end-user privacy, enabling them to receive the service without revealing their identity (they cannot be traced by the service provider).

Microchip is an industry leader in microcontroller, mixed-signal and analog semiconductors, with a long history of providing cost-effective, low-power solutions to the designers and manufacturers of electronic devices. By implementing the Intel EPID standard, along with other security features, Microchip is helping to deploy these devices across the Internet with privacy and security for both the end user and service provider.
