SmartFusion2 and Igloo2 FPGAs complete NSA secure implementation guidelines

Microsemi has announced that its SmartFusion2 SoC FPGA and Igloo2 FPGA families are the first and only FPGAs to successfully complete the US National Security Agency (NSA) Information Assurance Directorate (IAD) Secure Implementation Guidelines (SIG) document.

The document provides an overview of design and data security features that are most relevant to a set of information assurance (IA) systems use models, and includes guidelines for security policies. The guidelines for using SmartFusion2 and IGLOO2 FPGAs, enable defence system designers to address and mitigate security threats in secure communications and cyber security applications, says the company.

The two FPGA families provide silicon biometrics, including physically unclonable functions (PUFs) which allow each device to be uniquely identified and cryptographically validated. They also have AES 256 encrypted configuration files with SHA 256 based HMAC authentication.

Processing is protected against differential power analysis (DPA) with technology licensed from Cryptography Research.
