ChaoLogix Introduces ChaoSecure™ Technology to Boost Semiconductor Chip Security for Applications from Smart Cards to Smart Phones
GAINESVILLE, Fla. --(Business Wire)--
Inc., a semiconductor technology provider focused on developing
embedded security and low-power design intellectual property, today
introduced ChaoSecure™ technology that deters side channel attacks on
semiconductor chips and contributes a superior layer of security
compared to existing solutions.
Data protection is a major concern in the digital marketplace. Mobile
devices containing critical data are especially vulnerable to attacks
exploiting data leaked through their power and electromagnetic
signatures. ChaoSecure protects against this vulnerability by addressing
the cause of the leakage at the source, rather than dealing with the
ChaoLogix's proprietary ChaoSecure technology is a hardware-based
solution designed to provide optimal performance at the nexus of
security and power. Proven in silicon and validated by an independent
security lab, ChaoSecure is a secure standard cell library that can be
easily integrated into an existing integrated circuit (IC) - making it
the ideal security solution in terms of cost and performance for
designing complex applications ranging from smart cards to smart phones.
"Data protection is a critical issue to the technology industry and our
mobile information society," said ChaLogix CEO Brian Kelly. "ChaoSecure
is a cutting-edge solution that addresses multiple security concerns
related to side channel attacks. ChaoSecure provides maximum levels of
security at minimum levels of power consumption, and we are excited to
be working with several prominent IC manufacturers to help protect their
next generation of chips."
ChaoSecure is one of multiple technologies under development by
ChaoLogix, which is backed by more than $5 million in recent Series C
financing from Florida-based private investors and the company's
original investor pool. Led by successful business and semiconductor
industry veterans including Kelly and Senior Vice President of Business
Development Chowdary Yanamadala, ChaoLogix is based in Gainesville,
Fla., with offices in Jacksonville, Fla., and engineering operations in
Optimizing Performance, Power and Security
Specifically, by arresting data leakage at the source, ChaoSecure
provides a strong, integrated solution to protect against
Electromagnetic (DEMA) and Differential Power Analysis (DPA) attacks.
ChaoLogix has developed IC techniques that feature both ChaoSecure and
ChaoLogix's proprietary low-power technology, resulting in solutions
that optimize performance, power and security.
ChaoSecure technology can be integrated into almost any IC using
standard design tools and fabrication technology. ICs incorporating
ChaoSecure can be built and fully validated using today's standard
fabrication, assembly and test processes. These circuits may incorporate
standard logic, memory and the ChaoSecure core - all on the same device.
ChaoLogix has verified in silicon that ChaoSecure has intrinsic power
dissipation properties that provide an inherent, efficient
hardware-based immunity to side channel analysis attacks. DPA/DEMA Side
Channel analysis is today's prominent tool for deducing encryption keys,
exposing valuable data to theft. ChaoSecure solves this problem by
attacking the source of data leakage through power consumption.
ChaoLogix offers ChaoSecure in the form of a standard cell technology
library. A crypto engine can be targeted to use the ChaoSecure
technology library to incorporate intrinsic protection against side
channel analysis attacks. ChaoSecure technology is easy to incorporate
in any crypto engine design and does not require modifications to the
