Product overview


The STSAFE-J100 is a highly secure solution based on an Arm®1 SecurCore® SC000™ 32-bit RISC core. It acts as a secure element by providing authentication, data management and cryptographic services to a local or remote host.

The device embeds a secure Java Card operating system (3.0.4) compliant with GlobalPlatform (VGP 2.1.1 Configuration 2). It is ported on the latest generation of secure microcontrollers.

Combined with specific applications, the STSAFE-J100 addresses a very wide range of use cases. It can for instance be used for IoT (Internet of Things) devices, utilities, industrial applications and consumer electronics devices.

ST provides a complete set of tools for the integration of the security module:
