Security processing unit brings AES based cryptography to mobile applications

New Products |
Intrinsic-ID's Confidentio is a securely integrated and optimized IP solution that combines the company’s flagship product Quiddikey for secret key storage with a FIPS-197 compliant AES cryptographic IP core. Confidentio leverages the superior security and anti-tamper characteristics of Quiddikey in a pre-integrated security processing unit (SPU) IP that can be easily embedded in a mobile application processor, a Secure Digital (SD-) card or SmartCard.

It offers security processing for content protection, secure payment protection, secure communication channels and secure storage (local memory encryption and/or cloud storage). Confidentio is what Intrinsic-ID describes as the world’s first and only encryption module that has built-in key storage functionality without requiring embedded non-volatile memory, resulting in an extremely small silicon footprint. This IP solution is available for licensing as synthesized RTL (netlist) for hardware implementations, including in the smallest technology nodes (40nm and below) on Microsemi’s SmartFusion customizable system-on-chip (cSoC), as well as ProASIC3, IGLOO and Fusion FPGAs. It is also available in software version (ported on various embedded CPUs).
