October 31, 2018 -- The need for security applied to real-time control messages in Power Automation and Control Systems (PACS) is increasing due to potential attackers may have access to the communication networks.
Securing GOOSE and Sampled Values (SV) frames attending IEC 62351-6 standard is a technical challenge. These messages are defined as hard real-time traffic; therefore a very low latency is required for the processing of the frames. Additionally, a high data throughput may be required by an aggregate stream of SVs.
SoC-e wire-speed crypto-IP allows a deterministic low-latency ciphering and deciphering operation of these frames supporting up-to 16 Gbps of data throughput. This IP, named SAScrypt, is implements between the equipment CPU and the Ethernet switch, even inside the SoCs devices and it performs all the the frame processing independently to the software.
System-on-Chip engineering S.L. (SoC-e) is a worldwide leading supplier of time-aware Ethernet networking solutions. SoC-e is pioneer in developing a portfolio of IP cores and rugged platforms that implement these technologies for critical systems.
