SUNNYVALE, CA. Rambus Inc. will demonstrate its programmable root-of-trust IP core for the RISC-V architecture, the Rambus CryptoManager Root of Trust, at the RISC-V Summit in Santa Clara, CA, December 3-6. The technology will be addressed during a series of presentations, including:

Panel: RISC-V Security Ecosystem: Open for Business
Moderated by Brandon Lewis, Editor-in-Chief, Embedded Computing Design
Tuesday, December 4, 2018 from 3:40pm - 4:20pm PT

Keynote Panel: Opportunities and Challenges in Security for Open Source Hardware
Wednesday, December 5, 2018 from 10:40am – 11:20am PT

Presentation: How to Protect RISC-V Against Side-Channel Attacks?
Wednesday, December 5, 2018 from 2:10pm – 2:30pm PT

The CryptoManager Root of Trust incorporates hardware security and anti-tamper capabilities for applications in networking, automotive, IoT, and other verticals. The company will showcase the RoT core at Rambus booth 103 and SiFive booth 202 at the RISC-V Summit in the following demonstrations:

Multi-tiered Root of Trust for Connected Home – CryptoManager’s multiple roots of trust capabilities will be implemented in a connected home application that includes real-world devices executing applications securely on the same processor without having to trust other entities. Each application will only have access to cryptographically-isolated features and resources.

Secure Boot Application with Rambus and SiFive – Rambus and SiFive will highlight how the CryptoManager can provide secure boot functionality for a SiFive processor so that the system only boots images from a trusted source.
