Cryptography Research and Entropic Sign License Agreement for DPA Countermeasures to Secure Next Generation Content

Cryptography Research, the security division of Rambus and Entropic announced they have signed a patent license agreement allowing for the use of the Cryptography Research side-channel attack countermeasures in Entropic's integrated circuits. The Cryptography Research patented technology will protect Entropic's set-top box system-on-a-chip (SoC) products against differential power analysis (DPA) and related attacks. This agreement builds on the previous agreement between the two companies with Entropic already licensing the Cryptography Research CryptoFirewall(TM) tamper-resistant core for set-top boxes. Using DPA, attackers can measure the power consumption of a set-top box chip to extract secret cryptographic keys stored within the set-top box. The discovery of secret keys undermines the security of set-top boxes within a service provider's network and can result in the theft of valuable, high-quality content and services as well as leaving other data like personal information vulnerable. Set-top box SoCs that contain DPA countermeasures prevent the power consumption analysis through a series of techniques to ultimately protect the secret keys of a set-top box from being discovered. Side channel and DPA attacks are non-invasive attacks that involve monitoring the fluctuating electrical power consumption of a target device and then using advanced statistical methods to derive cryptographic keys and other secrets. Strong countermeasures to these attacks help protect tamper-resistant products used in applications such as banking, pay television, mass transit, secure ID, and wireless telecommunications.

Qualcomm Global Trading Pte. Ltd. Enters into a License with Cryptography Research for the CryptoManager Security and Feature Management Platform

Rambus Inc. announced that Qualcomm Global Trading Pte. Ltd. has entered into a license for the CryptoManager security and feature management platform developed by the Cryptography Research (CRI) division of Rambus. The CryptoManager solution will provide Qualcomm Incorporated and its subsidiaries with an advanced key provisioning hardware solution for their integrated circuit systems on a chip (SoCs), as well as an Infrastructure Suite for security throughout the SoC manufacturing processes. The CryptoManager Security Engine addresses critical chip and device security needs, including the provisioning and management of cryptographic keys across the chip and device supply chain. The CryptoManager infrastructure provides a unified platform across all provisioning locations and detailed visibility into operations. With the solution, chip and device makers can better cooperate to address advanced device personalization needs while ensuring the security of secret keys and sensitive data.

Cryptography Research and Fairchild Semiconductor Sign Patent License Agreement for DPA Countermeasures

Cryptography Research, Inc. and Fairchild Semiconductor Corporation announced they have signed a patent license agreement allowing for the use of CRI's patented inventions in Fairchild's integrated circuits. With CRI's patented technology, Fairchild's tamper-resistant integrated circuits are more securely protected against differential power analysis (DPA) and related attacks. This license also covers software developed by Fairchild's customers when utilized on Fairchild's licensed integrated circuits.
