We have used FPGA for HDCP (This is cryptographic content protection protocol), where it is required to encrypt / decrypt 8Gbps in real time. This cannot be done in this data rate by regular software means.
For what kind of "concrete" application should we implement cryptographic algorithms on FPGA? Which secured application require such a huge data processing performance ? Well, FPGAs are ideal for a wide variety of applications, from high-volume applications to state-of-the-art products. Imagine you are… a bank, or a Big Data service provider, or a ...
FPGA implementations give you a cryptographic coprocessor in a small/embedded device without its own CPU. They would be ideal in applications such as smart meters or other "internet of things" devices. Among other things they can function as hardware security modules, where keys are generated in the device and never leave it. Encrypted USB sticks and hard ...
Here is one example: COPACOBANA A Codebreaker for DES and other Ciphers COPACOBANA, the Cost-Optimized Parallel COde Breaker, is an FPGA-based machine which is optimized for running cryptanalytical algorithms. COPACOBANA is suitable for parallel computation problems which have low communication requirements. DES cracking is such a ...
