CryptoSoC

Project ID : A304

2001-2004

Work areas involved

Secure components for high speed networks.

Secure B2B and B2C platforms.

European-wide standards for highly secure transactions.

 

CryptoSoC aims at addressing the critical issue of developing a cryptographic SoC (System-on-Chip) HW architecture, intended to perform a wide range of cryptographic functions and related ones. The SoC architecture should be based on a collection of inter-operable IP blocks, developed collaboratively by the partners of the consortium, and it should enable the synthesis of various types of CryptoSoC components, exactly matching the feature requirements of each particular equipment (information server, network infrastructure, mobile handset), with a focus on very high performances (enabling large scale PKI infrastructure and Tb / s class networks) and on very high levels of trusted security (enabled by a Common Criteria evaluation and certification). The CryptoSoC consortium has been formed with partners covering the entire technology and market scope, from research laboratories to silicon foundry and product manufacturer, and with a focus on technological innovation and anticipation of the future market needs.
