Support of Security MCUs

In embedded systems with heightened security or performance requirements regarding cryptographic operations, standard microcontroller platforms often cannot be used. In this case, so-called security MCUs come into play. Such microcontrollers distinguish themselves through strong security measures against physical attacks on IT-systems such as side-channel and fault attacks. Furthermore, they typically feature hardware acceleration for cryptographic operations.

cryptosource has extensive experience in the creation of security implementations on such platforms:

  • implementations of smart card operating systems
  • integration of cryptographic coprocessors
  • side-channel and fault-attack secure implementations
  • secure key management
  • support in security certifications

We support you in the choice of an adequate platform, take over the implementation of the security functionality and assist you in a possible security certification of your product.

We also provide an integration the hardware features of the chosen platform into our cryptographic library flea.
