ST Secure Microcontrollers and security turn-key solutions ensure your peace of mind by protecting  your privacy in the fast growing  connected digital world.

From traditional smartcard applications such as SIM, banking or ID to latest ones like secure mobile transactions or Internet of Things, ST is able to deliver the right solution, including hardware secure microcontrollers, or complete turnkey solutions

ST’s Secure MCUs are certified as per the latest security standards (Common Criteria EAL6+, , EMVCo, CuP) and cover a complete range of interfaces for both contact and contactless communication, including ISO/IEC 7816, ISO/IEC 14443 Type A & B, NFC, USB, SPI and I²C.

By offering a complete solution ranging from a secure operating system embedded in the secure MCU, to full enablement and personalization services, ST offers seamless integration of security features to customers who might not be experts in secure systems.


STSAFE-A1SX secure connection to the Sigfox LPWAN IoT network

ST introduces the new STSAFE-A1SX secure element providing activation and secure connection to the SIGFOX LPWAN IoT network.

Part of the STSAFE family,  this tiny and cost–effective secure IC solution is based on a tamper-resistant common criteria EAL5+ certified technology that ensures the integrity and confidentiality of transmissions to and from the IoT device over the SIGFOX network.

New NFC controller and eSE solution with improved interoperability and antenna reduction

Our new NFC controller ST21NFCD and NFC SiP including eSE and OS ST54F offers improved interoperability on multiple transport infrastructures, including P2P, providing a much better user experience.

Capable of performing active transactions with extreme low power consumption, even while waiting for a transaction in Field Detection mode, this solution ensures very smooth and faster transactions as an easy integration for wearables and other portable applications.

Due to a new antenna design, integration is facilitated, the bill of materials is reduced and the PCB footprint is smaller.

Other advantages for designers include a comprehensive development ecosystem and pre-certification services which help reduce time to market as well as development costs.
