The non-profit USB Implementers Forum (USB-IF), the support organization and forum for the advancements and adoption of USB technology, whose main activities are the promotion and marketing of USB On-The-Go, USB and Wireless USB, and the specifications' maintenance, as well as a compliance program.

On Wednesday (January 2, 2019), it announced the release of its USB Type-CTM Authentication program, which marks an important milestone for the optional USB security protocol. This specification defines cryptographic-based authentication for USB Type-C chargers and devices.

The USB Type-C Authentication empowers the host systems to protect against potential damage from non-compliant USB chargers.

Besides, in view of many USB-based insecure factors, such as key injection, backdoor installation, simulated mouse movement, data recording, traffic hijacking, machine virus infection and other operations, the deployment of USB-C Authentication measures can provide effective protection against malicious firmware and hardware in USB devices attempting to use a USB connection.
