Trusted Computing Group Offers Security Assurances for Systems and Networks with Certified Products
PORTLAND, Ore. --(Business Wire)--
Computing Group today announced that it has certified four products,
including a Trusted Platform Module (TPM) and three products supporting
the group's security automation protocol, IF-MAP. TCG's certification
program ensures that implementations of its specifications are
complete and consistent.
STMicroelectronics (News - Alert) has been certified for its ST33TPM12LPC
Powered by the highly secure 32-bit ARM (News - Alert) SC300 SecurCore CPU, ST's
Trusted Platform Module guards sensitive data such as keys, passwords
and digital certificates, and provides trustworthy reports of system
integrity while protecting against threats such as software attacks or
theft and tampering. The ST33TPM12LPC (LPC version) has completed a
Common Criteria (CC) security evaluation and has received EAL4+
certification by the French certification body in July 2012. That
security certification as well as the functional compliancy allows the
product to be certified by the TCG as a TPM certified product.
The U.S. National Institute for Standards and Technology (NIST) recently
issued a recommendation
to deploy TPMs as protection against a variety of security threats. More
than 500 million systems and devices are protected by the TPM.
Three organizations also have certified their implementations of the TG IF-MAP
(Interface for Metadata Access Point) that coordinates and automates
security across a wide variety of devices and applications via a
standards-based publish/subscribe model.
research group (FH-Hannover) has certified its irond open source IF-MAP
server. The server was developed as part of the group's overall efforts
towards leveraging the capabilities of IF-MAP in various research
projects, such as ESUKOM.
irond is written in Java and can thus be easily deployed on a wide range
of platforms. Trust@FHH is a liaison member of the Trusted Computing
Group and has contributed to several specifications.
received certification for its Orchestration Server (IBOS). Infoblox, a
member of the Trusted Computing Group (News - Alert), has contributed to the IF-MAP
standard and was the first company to offer an enterprise-ready, high
performance platform for IF-MAP deployments. Infoblox Orchestration
Server delivers the IF-MAP standard approach for automating systems,
processes and applications. It can be used to aggregate and distribute
metadata to and from a very wide range of systems, including:
Network infrastructure systems, including routers, switches, load
balancer, and DNS/DHCP servers
Network security systems such as firewalls, intrusion
detection/prevention systems (IDS/IPSs), endpoint scanning/compliance
systems, policy servers and security information and event management
Authentication systems, such as RADIUS and Microsoft (News - Alert) Active Directory
Building control, factory automation, smart grid and other physical
Asset management, ERP, CRM, HR and other business applications
certified an open source IF-MAP Server, which implements the IF-MAP 1.1
and 2.0 specifications. omapd is written in C++ using the Qt Framework
from Nokia (News - Alert). Qt was chosen for its excellent network, XML, and container
classes; multi-platform support; and LGPL licensing.
