Fusion FPGA

Acceleration of cryptographic computation plus reconfigurable logic design

As hardware attacks become increasingly tricky, large-scale businesses and governments struggle to keep up. Not like medium and small-scale ones, it takes longer and costs higher for them to compensate for losses. Moving to an era where digital assets are more valuable than materials, we all long for a painless, flexible and convenient way to protect digital assets and intellectual property.

In hardware security, compliance is a basic requirement, beyond which usability and flexibility determine how agile businesses are to cope with potential threats. To meet the requirement, security subsystem should allow for adaptive reconfiguration and customization.

Powered by IKV-Tech’s specialization in cryptographic implementation, the Fusion FPGA platform enables customization of crypto algorithms to accelerate cryptographic computation or implement countermeasures against attacks. With the feature, customers have greater flexibility and adaptability in the fast changing threat landscape.

Secure Communication

IKV-Tech has built a cryptographic infrastructure for an international unit to encrypt data, messages, and calls from the specialized communication devices.

Why is our security chipTrustworthyReliableRobust?

I. Manufactured by world-known companies (Infineon) 

Security chips own many patents, including cryptographic algorithm, tamper resistant, secure COS and sensors that detect intrusive and non-intrusive attacks. Though many companies buy intellectual properties trying to devise a SoC that equals a standard security chip, it turns out that the cost is several times higher than gains.
II. Equipped with an accelerator and safe storages

The absence of accelerators leads to poor performance in the encrypting process since cryptographic algorithms usually involve computing big numbers. For security concern, the accelerator functions only in the secure areas of chips to boost the overall performance of security services. Storages are likewise very important, especially for cryptographic keys and confidential information. 
III. Capability of detecting and resisting intrusion

Means of intrusion vary with hackers’ tricks. Without appropriate design and implementation, devices are very likely to be attacked within seconds once vulnerabilities are exposed. Smart cards are an example.
IV. Strictly controlled channel by the original manufacturer

The market of security chips usually involves export control; only by NDA and certification can the access be obtained, and regular inspection is also needed. Security chips available on DigiKey or Mouser have been cracked and proven extremely vulnerable.
V. Acquisition of international certificates

  1. FIPS 140-2 Validation Certificate 
  2. ISO 15408 Certification
  3. Common Criteria EAL

These three mainstream certificates cost considerably high, from hundreds of thousands of US dollars to millions.

The market of security chips is very challenging; for manufacturers, precaution and countermeasures are in any time needed to satisfy clients’ requirements in this ever changing world, so our skills should always keep up with hackers’ newest tactics. Besides internationally accredited security chips, we also localize and customize our services, such as risk assessment, cost benefit analysis (CBA) and penetration test.

Lastly, to provide robust security chips and reliable solutions, IKV-Tech collaborates with world-known manufacturer, Infineon, to resell and develop the finest security chips.
