Encryption IP blocks conform to SM2, SM3, and SM4 standards
SM2 is a public key cryptographic algorithm based on elliptic curves, used for e.g. generation and verification of digital signatures; SM3, a hashing algorithm comparable to SHA-256; and SM4, a block cipher algorithm for symmetric cryptography comparable to AES-128. These standards are becoming widely used in Chinese commercial applications such as banking and telecommunications and are sometimes made mandatory for products procured by Chinese government agencies.
Silex Inside has now added these standards to its hardware IP blocks that already included the most recent and widely used algorithms. The SM2 implementation has been added to block BA414EP, the public key engine. SM3 is now part of BA413, the fast and complete hashing engine. And SM4 has been implemented in a new, dedicated IP core BA419. All these upgraded blocks are also part of Silex Inside’s comprehensive root of trust hardware solution eSecure.
