ST's data encryption SoCs are hardware solutions that embed an encryption/decryption engine. They perform all of the cryptographic calculations (assymmetric and symmetric) on-chip, without additional loading of the system CPU.
This permits a solution that:
- Outperforms software encryption solutions, in both speed (bitrate) and power consumption
- Is highly flexible in terms of end-application
- Resists attacks that use software and/or instrumentation monitors
