SecureRF’s asymmetric (public-key) cryptographic protocols are available on the new Arrow Chameleon96 community board. The company’s security tools enable deployment of small, fast and ultra-low-energy solutions providing integrity, authentication and non-repudiation for IoT devices.
IoT devices are often deployed with little or no protection because most security solutions do not have acceptable runtimes, need a network connection, and require labor-intensive administration of a universal key or password database. SecureRF’s Group Theoretic Cryptography methods, which include the Ironwood™ Key Agreement Protocol and Walnut Digital Signature Algorithm (WalnutDSA™), are at least 60 times faster than ECC, and consume up to 140 times less energy. In addition, there is no need to manage a database or maintain a network connection.
SecureRF’s methods are also quantum-resistant to known attacks, and will protect IoT devices based on the Chameleon96 board even when quantum computers become available and render currently-used methods obsolete.
Unlike other 96Boards, the Chameleon96 includes Intel’s Cyclone V SoC FPGA. The Cyclone V combines the performance of a dual-core ARM Cortex-A9 processor with the flexibility of programmable logic, which is ideal for accelerating embedded software with custom hardware, and provides the ultimate in system customization. It is also fully-compliant to the Linaro 96Boards open platform specification.
SecureRF offers Secure Firmware Updates and Secure Firmware Delivery for the Chameleon96 board in addition to its authentication and data protection solutions.
The company will be attending Embedded World, March 14-16 in Nüremburg, Germany. To schedule a meeting at the conference, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
