ALi Corporation Integrates Cryptography Research CryptoFirewall Security Core Into Next Generation System-on-Chip Solutions

Stocks in this article: RMBS

Cryptography Research, Inc. (CRI), a division of Rambus Inc. (NASDAQ:RMBS) and ALi Corporation (3041 TT), a leading provider of set-top box (STB) system-on-chip (SoC) solutions, today announced that ALi has completed integration of the CRI CryptoFirewall security technology into its multimedia STB SOC products. The CryptoFirewall core will be available in the ALi DVB-S2, DVB-C, DVB-T2, ISDB-T, and IP STB chipsets beginning in 2013.

ALi’s new generation of SOCs address the full range of cable, satellite, terrestrial, and hybrid solutions from feature to smart STBs. The advanced CryptoFirewall security core integrated into ALi STB chipsets will provide the pay TV ecosystem with a new way to implement robust hardware security design by a leader in smart card security.

“Security is a critical requirement for digital entertainment systems, and therefore is a key focus for ALi. As a global leader in STB technology, ALi has been highly devoted to enhancing chipset security capabilities for the protection of content and pay TV assets,” said Daniel Huang, chief operating & technology officer at ALi. “By joining forces with Cryptography Research, ALi Corp.’s next generation of SoCs will combine the latest state-of-the-art security features, and can provide long-lasting solutions for our customers.”

“ALi is rapidly emerging as a developer of complete set-top box SoC solutions,” said Paul Kocher, president and chief scientist for Cryptography Research. “We are pleased to be working together with ALi to address the hardware security needs of conditional access and broadcast systems.”

The CryptoFirewall core is a self-contained ASIC security core that 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 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.
