The manufacturers of connected systems, interested in defending their code and data in the Internet of Things realm will now have another channel to achieve it. For the first time, a secure flash memory device gets IoT security certification.

Flash memory is a non-volatile memory chip used for storage and for transferring data between a personal computer (PC) and digital devices. It is often found in USB flash drives, MP3 players, digital cameras and solid-state drives.

Winbond Electronics has certified its secure flash memory with the Security Evaluation Scheme for IoT Platforms (SESIP) scheme for IoT and smart connected devices up to Level 3 to protect against physical attacks.

The W75F Secure Memory Element is the industry’s first Secure Flash memory device with a Common Criteria EAL5+ certificate and alongside the SESIP Level 3 approval has also achieved ISO26262 ASIL Grade D safety certification for automotive designs.

According to, the W75F provides tamper-resistant secure eXecute-in-Place (XiP) with mutual authentication with SoC and a shared memory architecture for multiple domains. The W75F provides fault detection capabilities covering more than 99.9% of failures ranging from flash array cells, through the physical interface, and all the way to the host.
