ALTIS SEMICONDUCTOR INTRODUCES AN INNOVATIVE SECURE PRODUCT

Corbeil-Essonnes, France, July 3rd, 2013- Altis, leveraging its capabilities and long experience in secure products, is announcing a new product using state-of-the-art cryptology and technologies to address security and performances for mobile and connected devices.

PLM IC: a hardware crypto chip

Altis is developing an Integrated Circuit (IC) embedding a high performance, small footprint secure 32bit RISC processor and several top-notch symmetric and asymmetric encryption engines, as well as a true random number generator and memories. Some of these blocks are: AES 256 with 8 modes (ECB, CBC, OFB, CFB, CTR, CCM, GCM and XTS), RSA 4096bits, ECC, Diffie-Hellman, El-Gamal, and various SHAs. The AIS 31 robust, hardware-based True Random Number Generator ensures generation of secure private and public keys.

This IC is hardened and can resist to fierce attacks and viruses. It will be evaluated and certified as per ISO standard Common Criteria EAL4+.

The crypto IC encrypts/decrypts on the fly any data file or stream coming in or out of the host platform. It can be used for strong authentication. Data can also be hashed, for integrity control. It can be used for strongly secure PKI (Public Key Infrastructure) solutions, as well as signature and certificates. 
Its high data transfer rate of 100Mb/s (both ways) and low consumption will give a clear advantage over other known products, in the building up of secure solutions for mobile or connected devices. Its unmatched transfer rate will especially suit the requirements of the coming terminals. The PLM IC is ready for integration in a wide range of equipment.

Among other use cases, the crypto IC can be used in access and core routers, enabling secure telecommunication networking.

AUTHENT’IC µSD100: a secure µSD token

The AUTHENT’IC µSD100 comes as a µSD package embedding the PLM crypto chip and a flash memory.  It can be plugged into any µSD slot of an Android mobile device. 
The µSD card, a form factor selected because of its compactness and its growing use in network—connected mobile devices, is an efficient tool for secure storage and corporate BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) enablement. Memory size is initially of 4GB and can be partitioned by end user, enabling the storage of secure and non-secure data on the same card.

Other versions will come with USB interface, support of Windows, increased flash memory size. The AUTHENT’IC µSD100 will be delivered with a robust password manager, enabling users to safely manage many secure applications with only one password. A development kit will be available to develop security applications leveraging this strong hardware product.

Altis has started discussing with potential corporate customers, willing to highly secure their usage of mobile devices and remote network terminals, as well as various makers and distributors of mobile devices, routers and network appliances.

Cloud users, outside of the corporate world, will also find good benefits from this innovative product.

Availability

Sampling of the PLM IC and Authent’IC µSD100 are expected by November 2013. Production ramp up, following the Common Criteria certification process, is planned for Q2 2014.
