ESCRYPT CycurCORE Cryptographic IP Cores for Microsemi FPGA Devices

ESCRYPT has designed several new CycurCORE cryptographic IP cores for Microsemi’s FPGA devices. The cryptographic cores feature enhanced resistance to differential power analysis (DPA). The IP cores support all common cryptographic primitives, such as support for symmetric algorithms with AES, asymmetric cryptographic functions with ECC and RSA, and hash functions with SHA-1, the SHA-2 family, and WHIRLPOOL. The ESCRYPT CycurCORE cores are available for use with Microsemi’s ProASIC3, IGLOO, Fusion and SmartFusion FPGAs. The new cryptographic cores are available now.

CycurCORE Cryptographic IP Cores

  • IP cores for all common cryptographic primitives
  • Support for symmetric algorithms with AES, asymmetric cryptographic functions with ECC and RSA, and hash functions with SHA-1, the SHA-2 family, and WHIRLPOOL
  • Can be used as the basis for a high-performance hardware/software co-design of individual cryptographic protocols or hardware security modules
  • Can be adapted to and integrated into existing solutions
  • Enhanced resistance to differential power analysis (DPA)
  • Available for use with Microsemi’s ProASIC3, IGLOO, Fusion and SmartFusion FPGAs
  • Provide maximum security while imposing the minimum technical burden on system developers
  • Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) and elliptic-curve cryptography (ECC) cores incorporate countermeasures to defeat side-channel attacks
  • Provide the encryption of high-throughput data in a more secure way
  • AES-128 implementation provides a high data throughput with a low hardware footprint
  • Hardened AES IP-core combines several logical countermeasures against DPA attacks including algorithmic masking and time randomization
  • Side-channel resistant ECC IP-core hardened against simple power analysis attacks
