A new Intel White Paper titled “FPGA-Based Security Solutions,” written in conjunction with Xiphera, explores the use
of hardware-based security for the design of new IoT and Industry 4.0 equipment.
According to the white paper, the future of Industry 4.0 as well as IoT is promising, but before reaching their full potential,
the security requirements still need to be defined and carefully implemented. The white paper introduces the benefits of hardware and especially
Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGAs) regarding this matter.
The joint white paper argues the following: “… implementing the critical functionality directly in hardware is being recognized
as the preferred methodology to meet the critical security requirements. Additional advantages of hardware-based security implementation may also
include improvements in performance and reduction in power consumption.”
For a growing company like Xiphera, it is important to be able to utilise the academic knowledge that is a foundational idea of
the company. By publishing a white paper with a tech giant, Xiphera benefits from the expertise outside the company and the availability of the
partner’s global network. The partner, on the other hand, benefits from the solid experience and proficiency of Xiphera’s experts regarding
hardware-based security solutions and cryptography.
“We have learned a lot during this process”, says Matti Tommiska, co-founder and CEO of Xiphera and one of the authors of the
white paper. “Being able to have an impact on the general discussion about security based on hardware and FPGAs is what Xiphera is aiming to
continue to do. This joint white paper is only the beginning, and we are looking forward to write numerous white papers in concert with the
industry experts and leaders.”
