Sentry Enterprises, a technology-leading company focused on transforming what identity means across the physical and digital worlds, selected Infineon’s latest generation SLC37x Secure Element chip family to fuel its biometric platforms. Sentry Enterprises is the creator and maker of the SentryCard biometric platform, a privacy-centric, proof-of-identity solution, along with the soon-to-be-released Sentinel biometric cold storage crypto wallet. Sentry’s identity platform competes horizontally across all security, payment, and crypto sectors, and other market segments.
Sentry is in the process of finalizing its next-generation “universal identity platform” that incorporates biometric hardware, a cutting-edge card operating system, as well as integrated mobile applications and back-end systems. The focus of this platform is to provide solutions that address today’s security vulnerabilities while positioning itself for the future of Web 3.0 and self-sovereign identity applications.
“Our expertise in biometric solutions has proven to be the essential foundation for building a leading global identity ecosystem. Collaborating with Infineon to integrate the SCL37x Secure Element into the SentryCard and Sentinel biometric platforms provide the perfect balance between performance, power and uncompromising security,” said Mark Bennett, CEO at Sentry Enterprises.
“There is no question that privacy-centric, biometric solutions will play a critical role in the security, identity, and emerging crypto markets,” said Arnaud Moser, Senior Director of Americas, Smart Cards and IoT Security, Infineon. “We believe that Sentry is the first commercially scalable player in this arena, and we are very pleased that they have selected Infineon’s SLC38 Secure Element to strengthen their platform.”
Sentry uses Infineon security controllers, which are certified to the security level CC EAL 6+, and designed for Digital Identity use cases like electronic passports, physical access cards, physical tokens, and more for secured identification and authentication. Infineon is pleased to collaborate with Sentry to bring more secured innovative and convenient solutions to market.
Sentry’s biometric platform provides a critical missing element in today’s highly connected world – a user controlled absolute proof-of-identity that readily integrates with the world’s existing infrastructure.
