Update: Synopsys Expands Security Solutions with Acquisition of Elliptic Technologies (June 29, 2015)
March 23 – Ottawa, Canada: Leading global security IP supplier Elliptic Technologies today unveils a tiered family of Security Protocol Processors (SPP) that represents the broadest portfolio of embedded security solutions for packet processing and general cryptographic operations for all major security protocols (SSL/TLS/DTLS, IPsec, 3GPP/LTE-Advanced, WiMax, MACsec, SRTP, storage and PKI).
Digital security has become a critical requirement in today’s online landscape of social, multimedia and business networks. People and businesses connect and interact with each other anytime and anywhere. New classes of always-connected embedded devices are emerging making these interactions even more complex. We live in a world where voice, data, sound and video are all carried over the Internet. Privacy and control of information is crucial and demand for even higher data rates and more robust security solutions continues to grow.
The SPP family offers a unique tiered approach with the broadest range of cost- and power-efficient security solutions that can be configured to provide exactly the functionality and performance level a customer requires.
- SPP-SA (Symmetric/Asymmetric) Processing Engines: combine the diverse symmetric cryptographic offload capabilities with the asymmetric functions of a Public Key Accelerator (PKA) and the capabilities of a TRNG, creating a single very efficient, multi-purpose crypto offload resource for ASICs and SoCs.
- SPP-PDU (Protocol Data Unit) Processors: add packet processing support for specific high bandwidth security protocols, such as SSL/TLS/DTLS, IPsec, MACsec, 3GPP/LTE-A, WiMax, PKI or SRTP.
- SPP-MPDU (Multi-PDU) Processors: performance-optimized multi-protocol engines in support of a variety of security applications.
“Elliptic is delivering the industry’s largest family of reliable high-performance embedded security solutions which can be tailored to specific customers such as ASIC and SoC suppliers, embedded systems manufactures and network operators”, said Elliptic CTO Mike Borza. “The SPP product line builds on that commitment by focusing on the most important protocols used to secure data today.”
