Security Toolkit for the
Intel DE10-Nano Board

Developers working with the Intel DE10-Nano development board (based on an Intel SoC FPGA) can implement SecureRF's market-ready cryptographic toolkit to secure their next application or solution. Below are links to developer resources and product information.

Intel DE10-Nano development board

SecureRF provides a DE10-Nano FPGA board image that includes the Walnut Digital Signature AlgorithmTM and Ironwood Key Agreement ProtocolTM . Ironwood KAPTM enables two endpoints to generate a shared secret over an open channel, while WalnutDSATM allows one device to generate a document that is verified by another. Both are implemented partially in software on the Intel Cyclone V’s ARM Cortex-A9 and partially in FPGA fabric. The FPGA image is configured to run WalnutDSA together with Ironwood KAP as a demo. Also included are three separate demos plus sample signatures and cryptographic keys to help demonstrate the operation of the signature algorithm and the key agreement protocol. One of the demos shows the enormous speed advantage obtained when the Ironwood key agreement protocol is accelerated in FPGA hardware: the routine runs 32× faster in hardware than when run in software alone.
