In today’s cars, the Ethernet standard is the go-to solution for connecting zonal gateways to the central compute units that handle ADAS functionality. However, in-vehicle networks are vulnerable to a number of security threats, including eavesdropping, denial-of-service attacks, man-in-the middle attacks, and unauthorized access. This white paper explores how MACsec provides an effective solution to address the security challenges faced by automotive Ethernet networks and how Rambus MACsec IP solutions can be deployed across a range of use cases.
Quantum computing is being pursued across industry, government and academia with tremendous energy and is set to become a reality in the not-so-distant future. Once sufficiently large quantum computers exist, traditional asymmetric cryptographic methods for key exchange and digital signatures will be broken. Many initiatives have been launched throughout the world to develop and deploy new quantum-resistant cryptographic algorithms, known as Post-Quantum Cryptography (PQC).
This latest generation of the Rambus RT-600 Root of Trust IP offers many new features designed to support the security needs of customers today and into the future. These features include Quantum Safe Cryptography, Caliptra Root of Trust for Measurement (RoTM) emulation, an embedded physical unclonable function (PUF), as well as many architectural improvements, such as larger memory space and 64-bit addressing support.
Chiplets are a growing trend within the semiconductor industry. And to many, represent a paradigm change for chip designers and chip consumers alike. Rather than a traditional single piece of monolithic silicon with many functions and features, a chiplet contains one or a very limited set of functions and features. Multiple chiplets are then assembled into a MCM (multi-chiplet module). Chiplets can offer multiple advantages over monolithic silicon. Learn the advantage and challenges, along with recommendations for the industry’s successful deployment of heterogenous chiplets.
The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) announced on February 7, 2023, that it had selected the ASCON algorithm to become the standard for Lightweight Cryptography. In this whitepaper, we will explore what lightweight cryptography is and why it is worth considering for specific Internet of Things (IoT) use cases.
The continuously evolving technology landscape and security requirements for systems present many challenges for device and silicon manufacturers. Nowhere is this truer than in data centers. Rambus has long recognized the need for security designs in data centers, and the Caliptra initiative discussed in this whitepaper is a welcome step towards a widespread adoption of Root of Trust designs in SoCs. The Caliptra specification, released at OCP Global Summit 2022, is defined as a Root of Trust for Measurement (RTM). In this whitepaper, we will present how the Rambus RT-660 Root of Trust (RoT) core can be deployed for Caliptra use case scenarios as well as many other Root of Trust use cases.
