Using Zerynth and XinaBox AH01 (ATECC508A) for Hardware Security Implementation in IoT Nodes
If you’re interested in the combination of XinaBox and Zerynth you’ll sure like this tutorial on how to use the AH01 xChip with Zerynth Studio.
You’ll learn the basics of how to use the AH01 with Python, for hardware encryption. Most commonly, it is used for IoT Node security. As the author of the tutorial says:
“The xChip AH01 has many applications in security, especially for the IoT Node security and ID used for connecting to IoT platforms such as Google IoT, Microsoft Azure, Amazon AWS, etc.”
The tutorial uses it in combination with the popular Python programmable CW02 xChip, with a WiFi and Bluetooth core. As you probably already know, the CW02 is Zerynth powered, with a pre-loaded license. All you need to do to activate it is enter a voucher code. You can learn more about it here.
