Elliptic Technologies today announced that the company has partnered with Amos Technologies, a premier representative company for best-in-class IP and EDA vendors, to bring Elliptic’s portfolio of security solutions to the Israeli market.
“We are very pleased to partner with Amos to better serve the security needs of our current and future customers in Israel,” said Vijay Dube, President and CEO of Elliptic. “Amos has a proven track record of providing excellent quality and customer support to the semiconductor market in Israel. The partnership will further strengthen Elliptic’s ability to market and support its advanced embedded security IP, software and platform solutions in Israel.”
“We are very proud to partner with a global leader in security IP,” said Moshe Stein of Amos Technologies. “We see a great synergy between the IP solutions of Elliptic and the need of our ASIC, SoC and embedded system customers to address security issues on their products. The tight collaboration with Elliptic will enable us to offer our customer base complete, robust and top-of-the-line security solutions that can be seamlessly integrated into their custom devices with silicon validated IP and fast time-to-market.”
Elliptic Technologies has announced the immediate availability of its highly programmable and configurable security accelerator and Hardware Security Module, SPAcc-HSM. This unique security engine provides reliable protection for sensitive data and transactions and can be shared simultaneously with an application processor that requires lower levels of security.
Digital Rights Management (DRM) and content protection standards, such as Digital Transmission Content Protection (DTCP) demand robust security schemes to protect sensitive key information from non-authorized use. Elliptic’s SPAcc-HSM provides a highly-secure infrastructure for key storage and high-throughput cryptographic operations, and at the same time it can be shared securely and reliably with an application processor that has lower security needs.
“For many systems and SoCs, it is very important to protect and differentiate secure transactions such as key management from other transactions.” said Vijay Dube, President and CEO of Elliptic Technologies. “Our main goal with the security protocol accelerator SPAcc-HSM is to offer our customers the ability to share a single proven, cost and power-efficient engine between processors with different levels of security.”
The SPAcc-HSM provides specialized access control to key management and application processors and ensures that the security boundaries between the two domains are strictly enforced. The sharing of cryptographic resources between the two processors allows for significant gate count reduction and smaller memory footprint.
