SecureRF to Launch IoT Security Solution for Low-Resource RISC-V Devices at 5th RISC-V Workshop

SecureRF CTO to Present at RISC-V Event

November 28, 2016

Until now, design engineers working with low-resource variants of RISC-V processors have been unable to implement asymmetric (public-key) cryptography to secure these devices due to size and performance limitations. SecureRF announced commercial availability of its WalnutDSA digital signature algorithm and Ironwood key agreement protocol for processors based on the RISC-V instruction set, making it possible to secure even the smallest RISC-V-based devices.

SecureRF is offering WalnutDSA and Ironwood as part of its IoT Embedded Security Development Kit (SDK). Readers may request the SDK in person from any SecureRF attendee at the 5th RISC-V Workshop or at
