InCipher™ Inline Memory Encryptor
Athena delivers external memory protection for your SoC application with the InCipher inline memory encryptor cores. The InCipher M1/M2 inline memory encryptor cores provide secure random access to data and programs stored in vulnerable bulk memory devices, whether these devices are RAM or non-volatile memories, such as Flash. This enables your application to execute using the protected memories directly – without depending on the application to load sensitive code and data into on-chip memories. Using Athena’s mature portfolio of TeraFire® security solutions, the InCipher M1 provides cryptographic confidentiality for sensitive programs and data, while the InCipher M2 adds authentication for applications requiring greater tamper resistance.
