Lenovo selects Infineon TPM for new ThinkPad notebooks

April 4, 2016 - 

Lenovo’s new ThinkPad notebooks will be equipped with OPTIGA TPM (Trusted Platform Module) chips by Infineon Technologies.

The new ThinkPad notebooks are based on the 6th Generation Intel Core Processor family and use the OPTIGA TPM SLB 9670 chip which is designed to increase the data security of laptops and tablet PCs. Sensitive data such as security keys, certificates and passwords can be stored in the TPM chip separately from the main processor and are better protected against hacker attacks.

The TPM chip complies with the internationally recognized security standards of the Trusted Computing Group (TCG).

In addition to Lenovo, Infineon also supplies Microsoft, Hewlett Packard and Samsung with embedded security. The OPTIGA product family provides a range of security for electronic systems from complex IT-infrastructures with many servers and computers to single systems consisting of the device and the suitable accessory, such as a MP3 player and headphones. The OPTIGA security chips are embedded in the electronic devices and authenticate the individual elements of the system.
