Sigma Designs To Select The Cryptography Research CryptoFirewall Security Core For Next Generation System-on-Chip Solutions

IBC 2012 — Cryptography Research, Inc. (CRI), a division of Rambus Inc. (NASDAQ:RMBS) and Sigma Designs (NASDAQ: SIGM), a leading provider of System-on-Chip (SoC) solutions for home entertainment connectivity and control, today announced that Sigma Designs will collaborate with CRI to integrate the CRI CryptoFirewall security technology into its multimedia set-top box (STB) system-on-a-chip (SoC) solutions. The advanced CryptoFirewall security core will help Sigma Design provide its customers with the ability to provide robust hardware security in their digital entertainment solutions.

“Sigma Designs is committed to secure delivery of high value content on broadcast, IPTV and OTT platforms. Operators and STB OEMs benefit from Sigma’s Secure Media Processor (SMP) architecture that includes secure hardware accelerated implementations of CAS and DRM systems,” said Waheed Rasheed vice president of product marketing at Sigma Designs. “Cryptography Research’s CryptoFirewall technology is an important addition to our advanced hardware security architecture.”

“Sigma Designs is a leader in developing SoCs for digital entertainment and home control, which are industries that place a very high value on security,” said Paul Kocher, president and chief scientist at Cryptography Research. “We are delighted to be working with Sigma Designs to provide customers with effective solutions for protecting digital content against piracy.”

The CryptoFirewall core is a self-contained ASIC security core which provides a secure hardware foundation for signal security applications. The core is designed to protect cryptographic keys and computations within a chip even if surrounding components are compromised. The CryptoFirewall core is integrated directly into video decoding systems-on-a-chip (SoCs) from the leading manufacturers supplying the set-top box chip market. It provides a robust and cost-effective solution that is complementary with hardware and software-based conditional access solutions, protecting against piracy of content and services.
