Silex Insight, a leading provider for flexible security IP cores announced it has successfully validated their Crypto Coprocessor (BA450) through the NIST Cryptographic Algorithm Validation Program (CAVP).
30 October, 2019 - The Cryptographic Coprocessor is a hardware IP core platform that accelerates cryptographic operations in System-on-Chip (SoC) environment on FPGA and ASIC. It passed a full suite of validation tests for secure functions including block ciphers (AES), digital signatures (RSA and ECC based), secure hashing (SHA-1, 2 and 3) and random number generation.
By having this NIST-validation in place, Silex Insight enables companies to speed up the process for Cryptographic Module Validation Program (CMVP) and Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS) 140-2 certification for applications requiring the highest levels of security.
“Our customers can only be successful in this extremely competitive and rapidly changing landscape, if they can integrate our cryptographic IP without any delay and be certain that it has been thoroughly tested.” said Sébastien Rabou, Security Division Director of Silex Insight. “Through this validation and other certifications, we continue to ensure that our security controls and practices follow internationally-recognized security standards.”
Silex Insight will ensure the highest level of attention to security and compliance matters by continuous prevention and monitoring of security threats, as well as validation and certifications for their products.
