FPGA Hardware enforced security
Hardware Enforced Security.
FPGAs are useful to businesses because they can be dynamically reprogrammed with a data path that exactly matches a specific workload, like data analytics, image inference, encryption, or compression.
Optimized FPGAs are also more power-efficient than running equivalent workloads on a CPU.
FPGA HARDWARE-ENFORCED SECURITY
The foundation of our product line is in the firmware that runs the field programmable gate array (FPGA). The SAFE’s unique features are a result of implementation.
• • Every stage is designed from first principles
• • Sitehop testing is continuous, comprehensive, and cutting-edge
Guarantees and fundamental assurances are rare in cybersecurity. The goal is to find the solution that offers the lowest risk of compromise compared to other solutions.
FPGA-based security reduces security risk to the lowest possible level and gives organizations a high degree of confidence that their components cannot perform any functions other than the ones they were designed to perform.
Nothing can eliminate all cybersecurity risk; however, the addition of hardware security technology can turn previously vulnerable spots into the strongest points in a network and dramatically reduce an organization’s attack surface.
An FPGA is used to increase security over alternatives, by reducing the attack surface and making them much harder for cyber criminals to compromise. The SAFE100 is designed so that the Encapsulated Security Payload (ESP - the user data) never leaves the FPGA chip and is never in software.
The SAFE100 utilises high grade cryptography (AES-256-GCM) to keep the ESP data secure.
• FPGAs are useful to businesses because they can be dynamically reprogrammed with a data path that exactly matches a specific workload, like data analytics, image inference, encryption, or compression. Optimized FPGAs are also more power-efficient than running equivalent workloads on a CPU.
• One of the most important things to understand about FPGA has to do with how it relates to the CPUs and GPUs that most people are used to working with. CPUs and GPUs are instruction-based architectures. They’re general purpose – which is what makes them easier to attack via software-based methods.
