Infineon provides turnkey mobile security solutions with OPTIGA(tm) Mobile
A requirement for building security into mobile devices is that the entire supply chain for secure keys and certificates be protected. Infineon is addressing this requirement with a new offering of dedicated services for production and logistics related for its embedded Secure Element (eSE) devices.

To provide the market with turnkey mobile security solutions, Infineon Technologies AG (FSE: IFX / OTCQX: IFNNY) today introduced OPTIGA™ Mobile. The new brand extends Infineon’s OPTIGA™ range of embedded security solutions with dedicated services around mobile security.
OPTIGA Mobile helps mobile device manufacturers and OS providers to improve the security of their products while reducing investment in security critical production equipment and processes.
