Quantum-Resistant Security Functions for the Microsemi SmartFusion 2 FPGA

Veridify’s hardware core (Mahogany Core) on Microsemi’s SmartFusion2 family of field programmable gate arrays (FPGA) allows you to add high levels of security to your low resource devices without altering the standard platforms currently in use.

This public-key cryptography core, model H-AEDH-MSI-002, offers increased performance while requiring less power and a smaller footprint than other commercially available technology. The Mahogany Core is a Diffie-Hellman-like authentication protocol that utilizes Veridify’s breakthrough Group Theoretic Cryptography algorithm—the world’s first “linear-in-time” method. Veridify’s products help secure the devices in the Internet of Things.
