Nuvoton Technology Corporation announced its NPCT6xx Trusted Platform Module (TPM) family, implementing the Trusted Computing Group (TCG) version 2.0 specifications for PC-Client TPM. The NPCT6xx family is the first TPM2.0 device to achieve FIPS (Federal Information Processing Standards) 140-2 certification (FIPS 140-2 level 2). Combined with Common Criteria (CC) with assurance level EAL 4 augmented, the NPCT6xx product family provides the highest available TPM2.0 hardware security.
Trusted Platform Module (TPM) technology is designed to provide hardware-based security-related functions. A TPM chip is a highly secured crypto-processor that enables protection of sensitive data such as keys, passwords and digital certificates, and provides trustworthy reports of system integrity and states.
