DPA countermeasures safeguard hardware security modules against
SUNNYVALE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
Inc. (NASDAQ:RMBS) today announced it has renewed its DPA
countermeasures license agreement with Thales e-Security. Under this new
five-year agreement, the Thales line of hardware security modules (HSMs)
will be protected against side-channel attacks in a variety of systems,
including high-performance data center appliances. Specific terms of the
agreement are confidential.
"Cyber-threats and attacks are becoming increasingly sophisticated and
pervasive. Thales products are designed to help organizations stay ahead
of the security game by protecting sensitive information from
compromise," said Cindy Provin, chief strategy and marketing officer at
Thales e-Security. "By adding Rambus DPA countermeasures, we are able to
protect against side-channel attacks, which adds an important element in
our robust data security solutions."
DPA countermeasures, developed by Rambus Cryptography Research, consist
of a broad range of software, hardware and protocol techniques that
protect devices from side-channel attacks. DPA is a type of side-channel
attack that monitors variations in the electrical power consumption or
electro-magnetic emissions from a target device. These measurements can
then be used to obtain cryptographic keys and other sensitive
information from semiconductors.
"Thales recognizes the various threats posed by side-channel attacks and
has developed solutions that help their customers in businesses,
governments, and technology sectors mitigate the growing risk associated
with these types of attacks," said Dr. Martin Scott, senior vice
president and general manager of the Security Division at Rambus.
"Strong countermeasures against these attacks provide the security
needed to protect sensitive data and make sure attacks are thwarted."
DPA countermeasures are implemented in tamper-resistant products used in
applications for aerospace and defense, secure communications,
automotive, mobile, and content protection among others. For additional
