Rambus and Synopsys are collaborating to accelerate the adoption of advanced security platforms and technologies to protect valuable assets during key and device provisioning.
In this context, Rambus will provide its CryptoManager infrastructure and key provisioning services to support Synopsys DesignWare® tRoot™ Hardware Secure Modules (HSMs) with Root of Trust, enabling secure remote lifecycle management of connected devices.
“Rambus is pleased to offer secure provisioning for the Synopsys DesignWare tRoot HSMs to ensure customer data is protected,” said Dr. Martin Scott, senior vice president and general manager of the Rambus Security Division. “As a leading provider of security technologies, we are enabling Synopsys customers to quickly implement key provisioning with secure hardware enclaves to bring advanced security solutions to the market. We are excited about this collaboration and the opportunities it provides.”
John Koeter, vice president of marketing for IP at Synopsys, expressed similar sentiments.
“When building secure SoCs that connect to the cloud, system architects require HSMs with roots of trust that work hand-in-hand with remote provisioning services,” he explained. “Our collaboration with Rambus provides secure in-field provisioning for the DesignWare tRoot HSMs, enabling the infrastructure to protect connected devices from evolving threats.”
As we’ve previously discussed on Rambus Press, the demand for trusted applications on mobile and IoT devices is on the rise. As the amount of valuable data housed and communicated across mobile and Internet of Things (IoT) devices continues to grow, the need for a robust hardware based security solution becomes increasingly important. However, establishing and maintaining trust across an increasingly fragmented ecosystem has proven to be a daunting task.
This is precisely why Rambus designed its CryptoManager security platform to create a trusted path for the SoC manufacturing supply chain. The CryptoManager platform includes a Security Engine, which is a flexible root-of-trust implemented as hardware or software, for secure provisioning, configuration, keying and authentication throughout the lifecycle of a device. Additionally, CryptoManager Infrastructure and provisioning services support the Security Engine by Rambus as well as third-party root-of-trust cores, offering chipmakers and device OEMs a scalable and flexible trust management solution.
By providing a secure foundation for device configuration and personalization, chipmakers have the flexibility needed for post-manufacturing inventory management and streamlining operations to improve overall profitability.
