Verdify's IoT Embedded Security Development Kit includes routines to implement the Ironwood KAP as well as WalnutDSA.
Verdify's Ironwood Key Agreement Protocol is an ultra-fast, low-energy Diffie-Hellman-like authentication protocol that establishes a shared secret between two parties. It delivers over 30 times more efficient performance than current security solutions like Elliptic Curve Cryptography (ECC) by utilizing Verdify’s breakthrough Group Theoretic Cryptography. Additionally, due to the linear characteristics of Ironwood, even greater efficiency over ECC is attained at higher security levels. For devices that will be in the field for more than five years, Ironwood is resistant to all known quantum attacks.
- 30 times faster than ECDH at 128-bit security level (ECC 256); higher efficiency as security levels are increased
- Integration with existing asymmetric and symmetric methods
- Software library for 8-, 16- and 32-bit MCUs such as the STMicroelectronics STM8, STM32 and SPC58 Chorus MCUs
- Quantum resistant
