Demo details

Multi-tiered Root of Trust for a Connected Home

  • Rambus will demo the multiple roots of trust capabilities of the CryptoManager Root of Trust in a connected home application. The demo will include real-world device examples in a connected home executing applications securely on the same processor without having to trust other entities. Each connected home application will have access to only specified features and resources, that are cryptographically isolated from other applications.

Secure Boot Application with Rambus and SiFive

  • Rambus and SiFive will highlight a joint demo featuring a SiFive RISC-V processor integrated with the Rambus CryptoManager Root of Trust (CMRT) to provide a complete solution for both general-purpose and secure processing. This demo showcases how the CMRT is used to provide secure boot functionality that ensures that the SiFive processor in the system only boots images from a trusted source. This provides a foundation for security of the whole system. See the demo at SiFive’s booth #202.
