Secure High Speed Communications (Sichere Kommunikation bei hohen Geschwindigkeiten)

Project: Research project

Project Details


The main goals of the project have been centered around high speed implementations of public key cryptography. In particular, three threads have been investigated: (1) the development of appropriate hardware algorithms, (2) the verification of these algorithms by using suitable methods for VLSI implementation, and (3) to design, manufacture, and test integrated circuits resulting from (1) and (2). We have chosen two basic routes to achieve this. On the first route we have designed and implemented a series of RSA encryption/decryption chips with the goal of reaching an encryption speed of 200 kbits/sec. The second route has also the goal to propose a system for high speed public key cryptography, but with a different underlying arithmetic system, the residue number system. On this route, we have designed two chips which serve as the basic units in a massively parallel system.
