Rambus, a premier chip and silicon IP provider making data faster and safer, has 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 centre and government hardware against attacks emerging in the post quantum computing era.
“From AI, to streaming video, to email, the applications we rely on daily depend on the integrity of data and must be guarded against the growing risk of attacks enabled by quantum computers,” said Neeraj Paliwal, general manager of Silicon IP at Rambus. “The Rambus Quantum Safe Engine is another important addition to our security IP portfolio helping customers transition to Quantum Safe Cryptography starting today.”
“Quantum computers will provide individuals and organisations the exponential speed-up and compute power needed to solve some of today’s most complex problems, including the ability to decrypt current data encryption algorithms,” said Heather West, PhD, research manager of Quantum Computing Research at IDC. “Implementing quantum-resistant cryptography now is key for organisations to protect their past, current and future data from quantum computing enabled attacks.”
