Rambus Inc. and Synopsys announced on Monday a new collaboration to accelerate the adoption of advanced security platforms and technologies to protect valuable assets during key and device provisioning. As part of this collaboration, Rambus will provide its CryptoManager infrastructure and key provisioning services to support Synopsys DesignWare tRoot Hardware Secure Modules (HSMs) with Root of Trust, enabling secure remote lifecycle management of connected devices.
Rambus has developed technologies designed to address critical pressing security concerns. Its system-level approach with end-to-end solutions tackles security issues in any application – such as IoT, automotive, industrial, smart cities, and medical – where there is an asset to protect.
Synopsys’ highly configurable security IP solutions include HSMs with Root of Trust, content protection, cryptography and security protocol accelerator solutions to help prevent a wide range of evolving threats in connected devices such as theft, tampering, side channels attacks, malware and data breaches.
Rambus Security is dedicated to providing a secure foundation for a connected world. Our innovative solutions span areas including tamper resistance, network security, mobile payment, smart ticketing and trusted transaction services. Rambus foundational technologies protect nearly nine billion licensed products annually, providing secure access to data and creating an economy of digital trust between our customers and their customer base.
“Rambus is pleased to offer secure provisioning for the Synopsys DesignWare tRoot HSMs to ensure customer data is protected,” said Dr. Martin Scott, senior vice president and general manager of the Rambus Security Division. “As a leading provider of security technologies, we are enabling Synopsys customers to quickly implement key provisioning with secure hardware enclaves to bring advanced security solutions to the market. We are excited about this collaboration and the opportunities it provides.”
“When building secure SoCs that connect to the cloud, system architects require HSMs with roots of trust that work hand-in-hand with remote provisioning services,” said John Koeter, vice president of marketing for IP at Synopsys. “Our collaboration with Rambus provides secure in-field provisioning for the DesignWare tRoot HSMs, enabling the infrastructure to protect connected devices from evolving threats.”
