SMI’s Sypher Signature™ BlackBox Programming Services can be used to support a wide variety of companies wishing to add additional security protection mechanisms to their systems. Our technology enables the use of high security features, secure silicon and functions native in the SoC/module, and provides a hardware root of trust for strong authentication of third-party secrets. Compatible with existing security protection systems, Sypher Signature™ BlackBox Programming and Key Management System enables our customers to take control of the security in their systems by owning their own secret keys. Symmetric and RSA keys used for Intellectual Property protection can be allocated as desired by our customers.
Advanced content distribution and intellectual property protection requires that embedded security features are enabled and specific information to be loaded into chips and modules. Normally, access to programming services of unique IDs and Secret Keys is reserved for high volume security vendors who independently develop their own infrastructure on the SoC and module product line. This is expensive and complicated. However SMI is in the unique position to offer Sypher Signature™ BlackBox Programming and Key Management Services for virtually any SoC vendor or module manufacturer. SMI provides a common interface and access to secure silicon features incorporated into today’s SoC’s and modules allowing customers to maximize security in their systems. SMI offers support with a wide variety of SoC and module manufacturers to suit our customers product and business needs.
