The CryptoManager Root of Trust RT-610 is a fully-programmable hardware security core offering security by design. It protects against a wide range of attacks through state-of-the-art anti-tamper and security techniques.
The RT-610 offers robust security in an area-optimized form factor. The smallest implementation of the CryptoManager Root of Trust 600-series, the RT-610 features a custom 32-bit RISC-V siloed and layered secure co-processor, along with dedicated secure memories. The design also features a variety of lightweight standard crypto accelerators, including AES-FBC-4, HMAC 256 & SHA-2, RSA 2K, ECC 256, RBG-light, and DMA. The RT-610 is ideal for designs where security is important but silicon space is at an absolute premium.
The CryptoManager Root of Trust is an independent hardware security co-processor for integration into semiconductor devices, offering secure execution of user applications, tamper detection and protection, and secure storage and handling of keys and security assets. The Root of Trust offers a siloed approach to security. While located on the same silicon as the main processor, the secure processing core is physically separated. A layered security approach enforces access to crypto modules, memory ranges, I/O pins, and other resources, and assures critical keys are available through hardware only with no access by software.
Offering true multiple root of trust capabilities, each individual application can be assigned its own unique keys, meaning permissions and access levels are set completely independent of others. OEMs can determine access levels and permissions for each and all processes operating within the secure processor. Applications are siloed from each other, ensuring the best approach to security.
Included with the RT-610 Hardware Root of Trust are a series of standard secure applications (“containers”) to speed development, including secure boot, identity management, HSM reference, and others. A container development kit is also included to allow the development of custom containers for specific use cases.
Part of the comprehensive CryptoManager Security Platform that includes embedded cores, key provisioning infrastructure and infield services, the Root of Trust provides the highest level of end-to-end security at all stages of the chip lifecycle
File encryption, file system encryption and full disk encryption (FDE) are methods offered by the industry to allow users to protect their data stored on non-volatile storage devices, such as Solid State Disks (SSD). The main feature of FDE is to protect stored system and user date from unauthorized reading, writing, alteration, moving or rolling back. However, extended security features are key to securing FDE implementation.
