Secure Elements in Amazon FreeRTOS
Starting today, enhanced support for Secure Elements in Amazon FreeRTOS is available. We have provided two qualifications that support secure elements. In the first, the [Amazon FreeRTOS windows simulator implementation is connected to the Microchip ATECC608A](https://docs.aws.amazon.com/freertos/latest/userguide/getting%5Fstarted%5Fecc608a.html) secure element and the second is the [Infineon XMC4800 IoT Connectivity Kit with OPTIGA Trust-X](https://docs.aws.amazon.com/freertos/latest/userguide/getting%5Fstarted%5Finfineon%5Ftrust%5Fx.html). Both reference integrations have been qualified using [AWS IoT Device Tester for Amazon FreeRTOS](/freertos/device-tester/). Additional changes in our 201910.00 release can be reviewed in our [Changelog](https://github.com/aws/amazon-freertos/blob/201910.00/CHANGELOG.md). [Amazon FreeRTOS](/freertos/) is an IoT operating system for microcontrollers that extends the FreeRTOS kernel with software libraries for security, connectivity, and updateability to make small, low-powered edge devices easy to program, deploy, secure, connect, and manage. You can get started by downloading source code via GitHub or the [Amazon FreeRTOS console](http://console.aws.amazon.com/freertos). You can test your ported Amazon FreeRTOS code using AWS IoT Device Tester.
