Silex Insight’s TRNG selected for MiG-V from HENSOLDT Cyber

Silex Insight, a provider of embedded security IP cores, has entered into an agreement with HENSOLDT Cyber, a developer of secure embedded systems for the IT market, to use Silex Insight’s True Random Number Generator (TRNG) as part of the highly secure RISC-V processor “Made in Germany”.

Named MiG-V, a RISC-V RV64IMAC processor that enables customers to build connectivity-oriented security applications in areas like the Internet of Things.

The security landscape is rapidly ever-changing, and IoT developers face increasing pressure to step up device security and meet evolving regulatory requirements. HENSOLDT Cyber includes the TRNG from Silex Insight to enable security in their MiG-V solution.

The TRNG from Silex Insight is a digital source of entropy designed for compliance with the NIST-800-90B AIS31 and the latest FIPS 140-3 validation. The IP Core successfully passed NIST-800-22, 90B and AIS31 test suites on the entropy source.

The HENSOLDT Cyber MiG-V is a general purpose, logic-encrypted processor, targeting high-security applications. Logic encryption hinders the insertion of hardware Trojans, giving HENSOLDT Cyber the full control of the design and production chain. The CPU is based on a RISC-V core and can be used together with the formally verified seL4 microkernel (hosted in the chip’s internal ROM) to create an ultra-secure solution.

“The Silex Insight’s TRNG IP delivers great value, aligning well with our needs given its high level of entropy enabling privacy and security for all external communications. In addition, it aligns with our corporate vision Secure IT instead of IT security”, says Sascha Kegreiss, CTO at HENSOLDT Cyber. “Together with TRENTOS, our seL4 microkernel-based operating system, customers can design systems in various areas with a built-in security level hardly ever achieved before.”

“We appreciate the fact that our embedded security IP solutions are valued by HENSOLDT Cyber in terms of quality, ease of integration, and compact footprint”, says Pieter Willems, VP of global sales and marketing at Silex Insight. “It is exciting to know that our TRNG IP in HENSOLDT Cyber MiG-V solution is playing a role delivering secure IoT devices all over the world.”

This highly secure RISC-V processor that is ideal for security-sensitive applications, will be available for shipping from HENSOLDT Cyber end of June 2021. For more information about the MIG-V, please visit here.

The two companies will continue their collaboration on future solutions designed for secure communication for IoT products.
