NXP Semiconductors and Intrinsic-ID, a security IP provider, have announced the availability of a demonstration platform for the deployment of hardware intrinsic security (HIS) solutions based on Physical Unclonable Functions on NXP's SmartMX security chip platform.

The demonstration is said to enhance the Intrinsic-ID's Quiddikey solution to secure SmartMX-powered assets against cloning, counterfeiting, tampering, content piracy, theft-of-identity, and reverse engineering.

The demonstration compares conventional cards with cards using HIS storage method. First, the difference of personalisation mechanism of both card types is explained. Second, the user can try to clone conventional cards and HIS-based cards by copying data from one card to the other. For HIS-based cards, the cloning is said to fail due to physical unclonability.

"Advanced measures against cloning and reverse engineering are key to protect against future highly sophisticated attacks. With the first implementation of the Intrinsic-ID Quiddikey technology NXP is further raising the security level of our SmartMX platform. This new security feature will become part of NXP's Integral Security concept," said Kees Wesdorp, vice president for secure identity at business unit identification of NXP.
