Secure IC applications min

If you are designing electronics to go into a satellite or a military drone, it better have a useful lifetime of 15-20 years or more. Ditto for the grid or other critical infrastructure, your car, medical devices, anything where we demand absolute reliability. Reliability also requires countermeasures against hacking by anyone… Read More

CNSA Suite 2.0 crypto modernization timeline

Post-quantum cryptography (PQC) might be a lower priority for many organizations, with the specter of quantum-based cracking seemingly far off. Government agencies are fully sensitized to the cracking risks and the investments needed to mitigate them and are busy laying 10-year plans for migration to quantum-safe encryption.… Read More

Improving crypto-agility using hybrid PQC with ECC

With NIST performing its down-select to four post-quantum cryptography (PQC) algorithms for standardization in July 2022, some uncertainty remains. Starting an SoC with fixed PQC IP right now may be nerve-wracking, with possible PQC algorithm changes before standardization and another round of competition for even more … Read More

Signature Schemes Standardization Process

News of cyberattacks is routine these days in spite of the security mechanisms built into widely used electronics systems. It is not surprising that entities involved with ensuring safe and secure systems are continually working on enhancing encryption/decryptions mechanisms. Recently NIST standardized cryptography algorithms… Read More
