Rambus launches cryptomanager root of trust core
The Rambus CryptoManager Root of Trust (CMRT) is built around a custom RISC-V processor and is designed to provide a primary processor with a suite of security services, such as secure boot and runtime integrity, remote attestation and broad crypto acceleration for symmetric and asymmetric algorithms.

The use of CMRT mitigates the risk of critical vulnerabilities such as Meltdown and Spectre (see Security IP available for RISC-V ) and allows designers to optimize the primary processor for high performance, low power, or other characteristics while optimizing security in the siloed core, Rambus claims. The CMRT embedded security core is suitable for applications from networking to automotive to IoT.

"The CryptoManager Root of Trust also embeds features that enable semiconductor manufacturers and device OEMs to insert hardware keys, and enables IoT service providers to manage IoT endpoints throughout their lifecycle in the field," said Bret Sewell, general manager of the Rambus security division, in a statement.

With solutions like the Rambus CryptoManager Root of Trust, the extensible RISC-V ISA enables developers to build connected products with a fundamentally more robust approach to security," said RISC-V Foundation’s executive director, Rick O’Connor, in the same statement.
