SecureRF Delivers Cryptography for Tiny Embedded Devices

SecureRF’s CEO Louis Parks recently discussed processor security and security standards with ElectronicDesign. “Most of the security that you use today on your smartphone and laptop is 35 to 40 years old, but it works perfectly well. But with an 8-bit processor it does not work well at all. What we have done is brought in a branch of mathematics called group theoretic cryptography. . . . It is done with very small numbers usually 5 to 8-bits in size, which means that the numbers fit in an 8-bit processor. Our operations perform significantly faster and more efficiently,” Parks said. ElectronicDesign
