Atmel Adds Two EAL5+ Security Certificates to its secureAVR Family of Microcontrollers

    Rousset, France (ots/PRNewswire) -

    - Two Other Awards for Atmel's Security Expertise

    Atmel(R) Corporation (Nasdaq: ATML) is proud to announce that its contact AT90SC6404RT and AT90SC12872RCFT dual-interface secure microcontrollers have been granted Common Criteria certification to EAL5+ augmented to AVA-VLA.4. This vulnerability assessment corresponds to today's highest known proven resistance against any security attack.

    Both products share the same common features of Atmel's secureAVR(TM) family including its outstanding secureAVR 8-/16-bit RISC CPU performance, strong security mechanisms, a power-analysis attack resistant DES/TripleDES engine, firewalls and environmental protections. These products have been respectively designed to SDA (static data authentication) banking and high-end e-passport applications where high-security designs are a pre-requisite for selection.

    "These additions to our growing list of certifications include Common Criteria, MasterCard(R), Visa(R), FIPS and ZKA reinforce Atmel's commitment to serve banking and government markets which demand a high level of security. Once again, Atmel is leading the way in high-security system solutions," commented Benoit Makowka, Smart Card IC Banking and ID Product Manager.

    These certifications have been awarded by the French administration, Direction Centrale de la Securite des Systemes d'Information (DCSSI). Common Criteria certification is rapidly becoming recognized as a worldwide standard for smart card security, especially for government applications.
