– Algotronix Ltd., a supplier of cryptographic intellectual property announced that its AES Core G2 product has received NIST certificate #347 and is now on the AES verification list
The G2 AES core is the second generation of Algotronix Advanced Encryption Standard IP and implements the complete functionality of FIPS 197 and SP800-38A. The certification is for all standard key sizes (128, 192 and 256 bits) and modes of operation (ECB, CBC, CFB, OFB and CTR).
The G2 AES core can be targeted at all modern families of FPGA chips from Xilinx, Altera and Actel. It can also be supplied as synthesisable VHDL source code for ASIC designers. The core is highly configurable making use of VHDL generic parameters to allow users to quickly and easily evaluate area, performance and time tradeoffs. The core is normally supplied in source code form allowing customers with particularly sensitive applications to carry out a full security review.
Jon Jayal, Design Engineer at Quixant said “The Algotronix AES IP core is at the heart of the security system in the QX-10 platform. We selected it because it offered an unrivalled level of performance and efficiency. Design integration was assisted by the expert support we received from Algotronix at every stage.”About Algotronix
