Advantages of FPGA-based cryptography

Date: 16/11/2021

Dr. Kimmo Järvinen, Xiphera’s co-founder and CTO, talks about the benefits of hardware and FPGAs in particular for implementing cryptography. Hardware based cryptography allows full isolation of security-critical cryptographic computations and keys from the rest of the system and helps to solve many of the pitfalls of software-only systems. Reprogrammability of FPGAs then again helps to overcome many of the downsides of the rigidity of application-specific hardware.
