The PKA-IP-150 (EIP-150 formerly from Inside Secure) is a family of Public Key Accelerators (PKA) IP cores designed for full scalability and an optimal “performance over gate count” deployment. Silicon-proven, the PKA-IP-150 address the unique high-speed, high-security requirements of semiconductor OEMs and provides a reliable and cost-effective IP solution that is easy to integrate into SoC designs. The PKA-IP-150 can be deployed in any semiconductor design that requires high performance key exchange or key generation with low power consumption, and can be provided with or without protection against side channel attacks.
Nine different performance configurations ranging from 40K to 555K gates designs.
Public Key signature generation, verification & key negotiation with little involvement of host. FIPS-140 approved.
The PKA-IP-150 accelerates the following basic operations in hardware:
The included PKA-IP-28 core also accelerates the following complex operations, under control of an embedded sequencer microcontroller, using locally stored firmware:
Side-channel attacks conducted against electronic gear are relatively simple and inexpensive to execute. Such attacks include simple power analysis (SPA) and Differential Power Analysis (DPA). As all physical electronic systems routinely leak information, effective side-channel countermeasures should be implemented at the design stage to ensure protection of sensitive keys and data.
PKA-IP-150 public key accelerators are suitable for a wide range of applications:
The PKA-IP-150 is available in nine different performance configurations, ranging from 40K to 555K gates, each providing the full set of TRNG and PKA operations. The offer up to 4160-bit modulus size for modular exponentiations and 768-bit modulus for prime field ECC operations. The PKA-IP-150 is a security conscious design and can be provided with or without protection against side channel attacks.
