Security Provisioning Kits

Part Number: AT88CKECCROOT

The term provisioning is often used to refer to the process of configuring and loading security keys and data into crypto elements, such as ATECC508A devices. has made it extremely easy and convenient to provision an ECC-based crypto element during production of the board/product that uses the ATECC508A. provides three simple USB-based kits with supporting software:

  • Root Module Kit (AT88CKECCROOT) This module is used to securely create and store a root key in protected hardware. Each kit contains three USB Root Modules that can be used to create the primary root key and two backups.
  • Signer Module Kit (AT88CKECCSIGNER) This module is used to create signing keys using the root module. It can be used in the customers production platform to sign and load the crypto elements device certificates. Each kit contains three Signer Modules to provide a primary Signer Module and two secure backups.
  • Provisioning Starter Kit (AT88CKECCPROVISION) This module is a provisioning starter kit containing three USB Root Modules and three USB Signer Modules. It takes the place of one AT88CKECCROOT and one AT88CKECCSIGNER Module Kits.

All the steps are simple and spelled out in detail making it easy to seamlessly providing devices at production. provides the embedded system firmware and PC software necessary to implement the steps.
