EINDHOVEN, THE NETHERLANDS–(Marketwired – Jun 30, 2013) -
Intrinsic-ID today announced that Intrinsic-ID’s “Hardware
Intrinsic Security” (HIS) technology has been licensed to Panasonic
Corporation System LSI Business Division for their SoC product. HIS
is also referred to as Physical Unclonable Function (PUF). HIS
technology is based on a very innovative way to protect critical
secrets in an IC by extracting them from the electronic fingerprint
of the chip.
This SoC product
enables a solution for a very high level of protection of important
data such as 4k x 2k high quality video content. This security
solution can also be applied for any other application like medical
cloud, mobile payment, and machine to machine authentication.
allows a firm binding of differentiating software from Panasonic
System LSI and/or from Panasonic System LSI’s OEM customers to the
embedded application chips and prevents cloning of the systems by
the highest level of anti-tamper and reverse engineering protection
on the market.
In addition, HIS
provides a flexible key management/personalization and life cycle
management system that substantially simplifies the implementation
and distribution of mobile security applications.
“In the connected
world we see many new emerging applications that need a better
protection of mobile transactions and the privacy of individuals”
said Pim Tuyls, CEO at Intrinsic-ID. “Our HIS technology with its
flexible key management enables Panasonic System LSI with a unique
competitive edge of top-level security to further enhance their
“We are excited to
work with Intrinsic-ID to create a new usage model based by
developing SoCs with enhanced security,” said Noriaki Kubo,
Director at Panasonic Corporation System LSI Business Division.
Intrinsic-ID is the
world-wide leader in security IP cores and applications based on
Hardware Intrinsic Security™technology (HIS), also
referred to as ‘Physical Unclonable Function’.
In HIS secret keys
are extracted from the properties of chips like an ‘electronic
fingerprint’ and used to offer a total protection of sensitive
private and corporate data on mobile devices, embedded systems and
in the cloud.
