Andes’ secure memory protection and tamper-resistance protection provides shield against attacks. SecureRF’s authentication and data protection solutions provide strong protection for IoT devices that are lightweight, compact, and require ultra-low-energy consumption.
Low-resource 32-, 16-, and 8-bit IoT devices are often deployed with little or no protection because most security solutions overwhelm available memory and power.
Many security solutions also require a network connection and ongoing administration of a universal key or password database. These databases are subject to their own security risks, and can be extremely impractical to manage, particularly for high-volume industrial and consumer devices that may be distributed worldwide.
SecureRF’s asymmetric solutions, which include the Ironwood Key Agreement Protocol and Walnut Digital Signature Algorithm (WalnutDSA), provide strong and fast security that will protect IoT devices even when quantum computers become available and render currently-used methods obsolete. Based on Group Theoretic Cryptography, SecureRF’s cryptographic protocols are at least 60 times faster than ECC, and consume up to 140 times less energy.
