The Rambus RT-645 crypto core, based around a custom RISC-V processor, has been certified as ASIL-D ready by TÜV. The automotive-grade secure co-processor IP safeguards V2X communications, ADAS, ECU platform management, and other critical vehicle systems.
The CryptoManager Root of Trust RT-645 crypto core, along with its ASIL-B RT-640 version, includes secure boot, secure firmware updates, secure debug, attestation, device personalisation, key and data provisioning, secure feature and configuration management, cryptographic acceleration, and secure key and data storage. Both the RT-640 and RT-645 crypto core co-processors provide design integrity and reliability and have the collateral for an ISO-26262 design process.
“The increasing sophistication and complexity of automotive electronic systems brings a greater attack surface. This requires robust security solutions to safeguard these vital systems from a growing range of cyber threats”, says Rambus Security VP and GM Neeraj Paliwal. “With our ASIL-ready CryptoManager secure co-processors, automotive chip makers can be assured of functional safety and have access to a rich set of security features that can be quickly implemented to accelerate the certification of their SoCs”.
