NXP authentication devices enable system and device manufacturers, as well as end users,to enable or disable capabilities based on trust levels established between a host anddevice. For example, a system might authenticate a charger or cable before enabling highpowered fast charging, preventing safety issues that can be caused by counterfeitproducts. In another example, a system may choose to ask a user to confirm thecapabilities of a newly connected untrusted device before enabling capabilities thatcould potentially harm the system or even compromise network security.
NXP offers a range of secure authentication solutions to meet different security,form factor, and power consumption design goals.
