Simple, Integrated, Secure

Leverage existing Flash Memory sockets to enable IoT device health and identity

Securing the IoT

Cyber security is one of the biggest challenges and barriers to the growth of Internet of Things (IoT) deployments and associated business models across many market verticals like industrial, smart cities, medical, automotive, connected homes, etc. 

Micron's Authenta™ Technology provides a unique level of protection for the lowest layers of IoT device software, starting with the boot process. The approach of utilizing existing standard flash memory sockets enables system developers to harden system level security without adding additional hardware components, leading to a more affordable and robust IoT solution. A wide range of IoT end-points and edge devices that use standard flash memory chips can now be enhanced for improved system level cyber security, more pervasive zero touch onboarding deployments, and future device management capabilities using this combined approach.

MT25Q NOR Flash Enabled With Authenta™ Technology

Our MT25Q Authenta NOR flash delivers enhanced system-level cybersecurity in an existing footprint to enable IoT device health and identity. This new trusted memory solution introduces a unique level of hardware-based security that not only enhances the integrity of the connected device itself, but also extends protection to the software that runs on the device, starting with the boot process. The Authenta NOR device easily replaces standard serial NOR flash, adding key features while reducing costs and speeding your time to market.
