Individuals who receive proprietary or confidential information from other parties and those who provide proprietary or confidential information to other parties are responsible for safeguarding this information. To speed up your qualification for secure access rights, we request a signed NDA with NXP. Before approval, your request will be reviewed, and your information verified. To learn more, visit our
NDA FAQs page.
Your application is individually reviewed and subject to NXP validation. Uploading your company NDA with NXP helps to expedite the process. However, this is not a guarantee to gain secure access rights. If your application is declined, an email will be sent with further details.
There are two areas on the site to request higher access rights—through your Profile and through a product page:
Secure Areas of Interest. Navigate to
My NXP Account > Secure Access Rights > Areas of Interest
and select (by product category) the areas for which you would like to request additional access rights and save your selections for NXP revision. Note: The secure Areas of Interest section on your Profile is only visible if you have secure access rights.
Product Pages. Where applicable, under the “Secure Files” label, click “Request additional access”.
For both areas, describe the justification of your request for NXP approval. You will receive an email that includes the resolution of your request to gain additional secure access.
As part of our security protocol, NXP requests that your email associated with your NXP account is verified every 30 days. Any file that was previously unavailable on NXP product pages or under
My NXP Account > Secure Files will be made available after the reactivation.
Yes. However, depending on the changes you have made, your access to the secure information may get temporarily disabled while we process the updates. We'll send you an email when the verification process is completed.
Enhance your account security by turning on two-step authentication under My NXP Account > Profile. When enabled, a single-use verification code will be sent to your phone when you attempt to sign in. This extra security will prevent unauthorized logins, even if someone has your password.

Our confidentiality classification schema is the following:
Restricted. Designation which is used for labeling information that is intentionally exchanged with customers or suppliers under certain agreements (e.g. NDA).
Confidential. Designation which is not generally known, has business value, and which NXP desires, or is legally obliged to, keep confidential and which may cause significant damage to NXP or its staff by unauthorized use and/or disclosure.
Secret. Designation which is known only to a special and usually small group, has high business value, and which NXP desires, or is legally obliged to, keep secret and which may cause severe damage to NXP or its staff by unauthorized use and/or disclosure.
For security reasons and to protect the integrity of our information, some files require periodic preparation before you can download them. This preparation involves a digital watermarking process, which serves to protect our intellectual property for distribution and provides information about the contents source and intended use. Additionally, the files are optimized for efficient downloading.
You will receive an email when the file is ready to download. If you do not receive the notification to your inbox, contact support.
You can access previous revisions of a file by going to
My NXP Account > Secure Files
and selecting a file or by navigating to a product page and finding "Secure Files" under Documentation and Design Resources. To expand the revisions, click on the label "Previous Revisions" found in the metadata of the file.
Shown below is an example of what to expect when accessing previous revisions of a file.
Note: Previous revisions will be displayed only if you previously downloaded them. If you need to access an old version of a document, please
Certificates for Encrypted Secure Files
Note: The certificates section on your Profile is only visible if you have secure access rights.
The certificate password is a key that allows you to install certificate(s) and open encrypted files. This password is unique to your NXP account with secure access rights and is only visible for seven (7) days.
To get a password for your certificate, go to
My NXP Account > Profile > Certificate for Secure Files
and click on the "Certificate password" link. The password will be shown below this link to install and open the certificate(s). If your password is locked (
), click on the "request new certificates" link to unlock it.
Yes. Old or expired certificates should be installed using the standard procedure which allows you to open previously authorized files. When multiple certificates are attached these can be easily distinguished by their expiration date which is shown in the file name.
Note: The files that were encrypted with a prior certificate cannot be decrypted with new certificates.
