Connected devices and their communication need to be secured against evolving threats and attacks to protect ecosystems and valuable personal and business information. High quality TRNGs are a fundamental technology required to build a chain of trust in systems as many cryptographic algorithms for encryption/authentication and security protocols depend on true random numbers for generation of keys, challenges, initial values, and nonces. The overall security strength in systems and applications depends on the quality of the source of entropy that TRNGs provide. Flaws in random number generators can be used by attackers to compromise devices that are otherwise algorithmically secure. Synopsys has developed efficient TRNGs that are compliant with the NIST and AIS standards and can be certified in final products for certifications such FIPS 140-2 / 140-3, Common Criteria (CC), and China’s OSCCA.
In addition to TRNGs, Synopsys provides a broad portfolio of highly integrated security IP solutions that use a common set of standards-based building blocks and security concepts to enable the most efficient silicon design and highest levels of security for a range of products in the mobile, automotive, digital home, IoT, and cloud computing markets.
Synopsys’ highly configurable security IP solutions include hardware secure modules with Root of Trust, content protection, cryptography, and security protocol accelerators for integration into SoCs. These integrated solutions enable the heart of many security standards, supporting confidentiality, data integrity, user/system authentication, non-repudiation, and positive authorization. Combined, Synopsys’ security IP solutions help prevent a wide range of evolving threats in connected devices such as theft, tampering, side channels attacks, malware and data breaches.
