GEON HSM


Software running on a SoC often requires execution of cryptographic operations. The GEON HSM enables software to execute such cryptographic operations without access to secret keys. Thus a bug in software will not expose secret keys to an attacker.


     
 Purpose
The GEON HSM / key storage enables:
  • Secure generation and storage of secret key material.
  • Secure operations using secret key material.
 
 
Feature Highlights
  • May include various levels of physical and side channel protections.
  • Many cryptographic algorithms supported, including RSA, ED25519, NIST curves, SHA2, SHA3, AES-GCM...
  • Contained and secure key material generation.
  • Contained secret key operations (sign, encrypt, decrypt…)
 
 
Applications
  • Aerospace, Defense, Medical, Critical Infrastructure
  • Automotive, Industrial
  • Connected devices, IoT, 5G
  
 

The GEON SoC Security Platform
 
The GEON SoC Security Platform comprises of multiple security functions that share common hardware logic and accelerators wherever possible. This way adding additional security function may have only negligible impact on power and gate count. For example, cryptographic hardware accelerators, secret (key) storage, protection mechanisms, random number generator, etc., are shared among all implemented GEON security functions.
 
The GEON SoC Security Suite includes the following security functions:
 
Device is either Secure or Not Secure given Security Assumptions and Threat Model. Effective security requires understanding of the likely attacks, exposure of the device and severity of consequences so that the effort can be spent where it matters most.
 
Beyond works with clients determining pragmatic Threat Model with focus on denying high impact and high likelihood threats first.
