Quantum resistant tech wins large during ARM TechCon

Security was one of a biggest topics during a 2017 ARM TechCon, with SecureRF receiving a tip endowment for what it claims are a quantum-resistant confidence tools.

At a conference, a association bagged a endowment for “Best Contribution to IoT Security” for a confidence solutions, dictated for connected technologies.

The company, that competed alongside a array of clever finalists, was recognized for a public-key encryption solutions: Ironwood Key Agreement Protocol and Walnut Digital Signature Algorithm.

These products, a Shelton, Connecticut-based association claims, offer future-proof authentication and information insurance for low-resource devices. 

According to SecureRF, many IoT inclination currently are regulating on aged 8-, 16- and 32-bit processors, and lack the computing and memory resources compulsory to support complicated confidence methods.

Engineers building solutions are also struggling to residence a hazard of quantum mechanism attacks, that can kill widely famous bequest cryptographic protocols, such as ECC and RSA.

SecureRF is addressing these problems with solutions that can scale and work in inclination with singular computational resources.

The firm’s flagship solutions, accessible in hardware and program implementations, are 60 times faster than ECC, it claims, and devour around 140 times reduction appetite and equivocate a need for a pivotal database.

SecureRF’s solutions give engineers regulating a smallest ARM Cortex-M array processors a ability to secure their IoT products fast and easily.

Although a association is competing in a rather swarming market, a public-key solutions and digital signature algorithms are potentially transformative – catering for wireless sensors, NFC, RFID tags and Bluetooth.

Its products are formed on an “algorithmically efficient, one-way function” called E-Multiplication. This algorithm, a association argues, is “computationally hard” to reverse, though is still “rapidly computable”.

The record is behind cryptographic constructions, such as open pivotal agreement and tip pivotal methods, a digital signature method, a cryptographic crush process and a pseudo-random array generator.


Other finalists enclosed CENTRI Technology, that showed off an IoT-AS resolution for device authentication and information protection, and Orbbec, that demonstrated a new hardware platform.
