EE Times Article: Rambus Taps RISC-V For Root Of Trust

By April 17, 2018May 12th, 2021No Comments

Rambus announced a security block based on the RISC-V core aimed, in part, to plug the Meltdown/Spectre flaws revealed earlier this year. The CryptoManager Root of Trust targets use in a wide spectrum of ASICs, microcontrollers, and SoCs in embedded systems.
Rambus claims that the new block sports several advantages over root-of-trust functions already integrated in most existing embedded processors. It suggested that OEMs should move this fundamental hardware-security function out of mainstream x86 and ARM embedded processors that Spectre/Meltdown showed are vulnerable to side-channel attacks.
