Rambus Inc. announced the availability of a Quantum Safe Engine (QSE) for integration into hardware security elements in ASICs, SoCs, and FPGAs. Quantum computers will enable adversaries to break current asymmetric encryption, placing important data and assets at risk. The Rambus QSE IP core uses NIST-selected quantum-resistant algorithms to protect valuable data centers and government hardware against attacks emerging in the post-quantum computing era.
The Rambus QSE IP is available as a standalone cryptographic core or integrated into the Rambus Quantum Safe Root of Trust IP as a comprehensive hardware security solution. It supports the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) draft standards for quantum-resistant algorithms (FIPS 203 ML-KEM and FIPS 204 ML-DSA) and provides SHA-3, SHAKE-128, and SHAKE-256 acceleration. For highly secure applications requiring additional protection against differential power analysis (DPA) attacks, a DPA version of the QSE IP is available.
The Rambus QSE is available for licensing today.
