The electronics manufacturing industry is evolving fast, with new standards and new security requirements that may create challenges for OEMs at manufacturing level.
For instance, the Matter standard, which is now adopted for smart home applications, enforces strong security requirements at device and factory levels, requiring manufacturers to operate a PKI infrastructure, to generate and inject a unique digital certificate at manufacturing stage. Also, new standards emerge, such as OPC-UA standard used for Industry 4.0 applications, or OEM preparing to be compliant with the Cyber Resilience Act (CRA) that will shift IoT security liability to the manufacturer.
Trusted Objects is introducing tops plug&go V2, which is able to connect to any certified PKI platform enabling secure generation and secure injection of a unique factory certificate compliant with standards. Factory certificate provisioning is the cornerstone of security requirement defined in most standards.
Another standard-independent and generic security challenge in production is the aggregation and the security of all data to be programmed, data coming from multiple locations: ERP, firmware server, etc… tops plug&go V2 allows the aggregation of all these data in one secure tool directly connected with the programming engine or test bench. tops plug&go V2 is able to integrate data coming from various platforms through secure connections, to accept different input files and to encrypt all data before programming.
tops plug&go V2 is already deployed by Trusted Objects partners for large- and small-scale projects for customers in the home automation and other areas.
Jean-Pierre Delesse, COO and cofounder of Trusted Objects, declares: “With tops plug&go V2 we provide an always better answer to the needs of OEMs and manufacturers alike. They are now able to benefit from the efficiency and security of our solution in connection with any PKI from the market.”
In addition, for OEM using manual or semi-manual programming systems from silicon vendors, tops plug&go V2 is also supplied with a new production software, tops client, allowing to automate and secure these in-house manual programming systems.
