Elliptic was founded in 2001 with the goal of becoming the world's leading supplier to semiconductor IP offload engines and associated middleware for security. The team has significant expertise in security design gained from developing System-on-Chip designs and associated driver software at Chrysalis-ITS.
Over the last five years, there has been a significant convergence of security design based upon the efforts of the IEEE, the National Security Agency and the National Institute of Science and Technology. The convergence has focused on the Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) to replace the Data Encryption Standard (DES) and Elliptic Curve Cryptography (ECC) to eventually replace the RSA algorithm.
The ESM-01: DTCP Embedded Security Module is a security core from the family of Embedded Security Modules and is targeted at off the shelf security functions such as DTCP (the Digital Transmission Content Protection) content protection technology licensed to implementers by the DTLA (the DTCP Licensing Authority).
The ESM-02: Payment Card Industry Embedded Security Module is a security core targeted at the new PCI (Payment Card Industry) specification. This specification requires that merchants maintain sensitive information such as credit card numbers; personal identifier numbers (PINs) and other customer information in encrypted form. The specification includes the encryption and key generation requirements and criteria for robustness against common attack techniques such as physical attacks and power analysis. When integrated, the ESM-02 provides a robust security design that is fully compliant to the PCI specifications.
The tVault™ HDCP 2.2 Software Development Kit (HDCP SDK) is a field proven and robust hardware-assisted content protection solution for streaming digital entertainment content over wireless and wireline interfaces on connected devices.
The tVault HDCP 2.x SDK provides OEMs and embedded system and device manufacturers a seamless implementation of the HDCP 2.2 standard in a Trusted Execution Environment (TEE), allowing them to shorten their development cycle and fully meet the stringent compliancy and robustness requirements of the DCP LLC licensing authority.
The SPP-230: ESP/AH PDU Processor, a member of Elliptic's Security Protocol Processors (SPP) family, is a highly integrated security product that accelerates IPsec packet processing operations to achieve multi Gbps throughput by providing complete ESP and AH packet transforms on IP packets.
The SPP-330 IPsec/TLS Multi-protocol PDU Processor is a member of Elliptic's highly-integrated Security Protocol Processors (SPP) family targeted at ASIC manufacturers and FPGA designers and supports the Internet Protocol Security (IPsec) protocol, as well as the Transport Layer Security (TLS), Secure Socket Layer (SSL) and Datagram Transport Layer Security (DTLS) application layer protocols. The processor addresses today's security needs for a wide range of applications, including residential gateways, VPN and gateway appliances, LTE small cells, terminal servers and thin clients.
