PROBABLY THE MOST EFFICIENT ARCHITECTURE FOR ECC-BASED AUTHENTICATION

The digital signature is an effective method to protect information from modifications by fraudsters. However, the more sophisticated the attacks of cybercriminals get, the more complex authentication algorithms have to be decommissioned. This additional complexity increases execution time and requires additional computing resources.

In a project, In collaboration with the University of Applied Science (HSR) in Rapperswil, Switzerland, Securosys has investigated ways to protect information in the future. The researchers of the Institute for Microelectronics and Embedded Systems (IMES) have developed, among other, a computing architecture, which, to the best of their knowledge, is most effective for calculating ECC-based algorithms, which are often used in connection with digital signatures.
