Samsung Electronics has launched a new secure element (SE) chip to protect mobile devices, the company said Tuesday.

Called S3FV9RR, the chip will be offered in standalone turnkey with a security software, the South Korean tech giant said. It will be available in the third quarter. 

The security chip is Common Criteria Evaluation Assurance Level (CC EAL) 6+ certified. Common Criteria grades IT product security levels from EAL0 to EAL7, with 7 being the most secure. 

Samsung claimed the chip's 6+ certification is highest for a mobile component to date.

It will offer protection for mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets as well as e-passports and hardware wallets for cryptocurrency when performing booting, isolated storage, mobile payment and other applications.

It also supports hardware-based root of trust (RoT) and device authentication.

The chip can work independently from the security performances of main processors of devices making the solution versatile, Samsung added.

The company first deployed a similar security chip for the Galaxy S20 series launched in February, which was CC EAL 5+certified.

The latest chip will likely on the Galaxy Note 20 series launching sometime in the third quarter.
