Eurosmart Releases PP-0117 Secure Subsystem SoC Protection Profile: Tiempo Secure IP Products Are Ready | News

The new PP-0117 protection profile brings secure element security to subsystems within a system-on-chip; Tiempo Secure CC EAL5+ certified TESIC Secure Element IP is already compliant with the new published specification.

GRENOBLE, France, April 5, 2022 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ — Eurosmart, the voice of the digital security industry, provides technical input to all market players in the form of specifications that ensure interoperability and security. For years, the Common Criteria Protection Profile PP-0084 has been the benchmark for security as it defined the target of evaluation for certification of secure microcontrollers originally used by the smart card industry. . The industry organization Eurosmart has just published a new protection profile PP-0117, which specifies the security rules for hardware secure enclaves within the framework of a system on chip.

BSI, Germany’s Federal Office for Information Security, has just completed certification of Eurosmart’s PP-0117 Version 1.5 for Secure Subsystem in System on a Chip (3S in SoC) for compliance Common Criteria (CC). The target of evaluation (TOE) is the secure (3S) subsystem integrated into a system on chip (SoC) defined by the PP-0117.

Tiempo Secure has participated in the development of the PP-0117 specification since its creation. As such, the semi-conductor security expert company was able to work with all the prestigious Eurosmart players and share its expertise with all the developers of the PP-0117 version 1.5 specifications.

Tiempo Secure TESIC Secure Element IP has been developed according to these guidelines and already integrated into a silicon chip that has been certified Common Criteria EAL 5+ by the CEA Leti ITSEF (Information Technology Security Evaluation Facility).

Therefore, Tiempo Secure TESIC is the first Secure Element IP on the market to comply with Eurosmart’s PP-0117 Protection Profile for Secure Subsystem in System on Chip (3S in SoC) and to have already achieved the common EAL 5 criteria + certification.

Serge Maginot, CEO of Tiempo Secure, says: “The new PP-0117 Protection Profile becomes the benchmark for up-to-date security architectures, which include an IP secure element inside a System on Chip. We are pleased to see that our vision of Secure Elements intellectual property is now recognized by the entire industry.”

Tiempo Secure TESIC IP is ready for CC EAL5+ certification. Tiempo Secure offers all services for writing CC compliant documentation, preparing samples and customer chip cards for evaluation, supporting ITSEF labs in evaluating and certifying customer chips, and interacting with the national cybersecurity agency to obtain the CC certificate.
