CryptoFirewall Verifier Core

The Verifier core is a hardware-based security block designed to provide secure authentication and reduce counterfeiting business risk for mass-market consumables and peripherals. It delivers robust anti-counterfeiting protection for today’s connected devices including medical devices, printers, batteries and automotive components.

How CryptoFirewall Verifier Core works

Our Verifier core is a robust, anti-counterfeiting hardware core designed to provide authentication with the highest level of tamper resistance.

The core can be used in conjunction with our CryptoFirewall Consumable core as part of a complete consumable protection system. It integrates into the device SoC and communicates to the CryptoFirewall Consumable core to authenticate and verify system integrity of the consumable or peripheral.

Our Verifier core monitors the balances of the usage counters within the Consumable core, denying authentication once the balance reaches zero.
