Flex Logix® Technologies, Inc., the leading supplier of reconfigurable computing solutions, architecture, and software, today announced that it has partnered with Intrinsic ID to ensure that any device using its eFPGA remains secure and can’t be modified maliciously, whether through physical attacks or remote hacking. The integration of Intrinsic ID SRAM Physical Unclonable Function (PUF) military-grade security IP with Flex Logix’s EFLX® eFPGA provides a device unique silicon fingerprint that is used to secure confidential data contained in the bitstream of the eFPGA. If the device is attacked or found in the field, the eFPGA bitstream cannot be read, altered, or copied because the root secret is never stored and therefore invisible and unclonable. This provides a mission-critical level of security to eFPGA customers.
“With security being one of the top concerns for every SoC, encryption has become a critical technology to ensure the device remains secure from the rising threat of sophisticated hackers,” said Andy Jaros, VP IP Sales, Marketing & Solutions Architecture for Flex Logix. “While there are several options available today for encryption, our technology integration with Intrinsic ID takes security to the next level, particularly when dealing with high-risk assets included in the eFPGA for obfuscation.”
“In markets where eFPGA solutions are typically deployed, security is of vital importance, as these are often highly sensitive military, aerospace, and secure-computing applications,” said Pim Tuyls, CEO and Co-Founder of Intrinsic ID. “This is why our strategic partnership with Flex Logix is so essential. We provide customers using EFLX eFPGA technology with a highly secure, flexible, and scalable security solution that protects their bitstream and supply chain.”
