IAX10.5Kb CryptoAuthentication Memory Token-Image

The Datakey IAX10.5Kb CryptoAuthentication extended length memory token utilizes Microchip’s ATECC608A IC, part of their CryptoAuthentication family of high-security hardware authentication ICs. The IAX10.5Kb memory token takes the ATECC608A’s security features and puts them into a physically robust portable memory device, enabling embedded applications, like:

  • Secure storage/transfer of keys, certificates, passwords
  • Secure credential with unique, read-only serial number
  • Crypto Ignition Key (CIK)
  • Device authentication (anti-counterfeit) with countdown limit use
  • Secure Boot and Secure Download Firmware Update 

The token’s internal IC contains a 1208-byte (9664-bit) Data Zone of EEPROM memory that is divided into 16 slots. 8 slots are 36 bytes (288 bits), 7 slots are 72 bytes (576 bits) and one slot is 416 bytes (3328 bits). Each slot can be configured for read-only or read/write access in either clear or encrypted modes. There is also a 64-byte (512-bit) One Time Programmable (OTP) Zone. Data may be written until the zone is locked. Two monotonic counters can be used for limit-use applications. The IC also includes a unique 9-byte (72-bit) non-changeable serial number. The ATECC608A also features a random number generator, hardware support for asymmetric Elliptic Curve Cryptography (ECDH and ECDSACC) and hardware support for symmetric algorithms SHA-256 and AES-128. The IC also incorporates security features to detect tampering and thwart attacks.

 The memory token uses solid over-molded construction using a rugged composite that protects the internal IC from harsh environments. The token features redundant contacts so it can be inserted into the receptacle with either side up. The longer body of the extended length memory token allows the token to be easily gripped, even with gloved hands.  The tokens are available in six standard colors. Customization options include custom color matching, a custom molded-in logo and laser-marking.

Optional extension boards are available that allow the Datakey CryptoAuthentication memory tokens to be used with the Microchip CryptoAuthentication SOIC starter kit (and ATSAMD21-XPRO development board).
