Cryptographic controller MAXQ1061 for embedded electronics

Date: 03/12/2016
In today's competitive world security can no longer be an afterthought in system design. This issue was overcome by the cryptographic controller MAXQ1061.

The DeepCover cryptographic controller (MAXQ1061) protects the confidentiality, authenticity and integrity of software IP, communication and revenue models. It is ideal for connected embedded devices, industrial networking, PLC, and network appliances.

By the Implement of Turnkey Security for Connected Devices with Maxim's Cryptographic Controller MAXQ1061 speeds design time with full security and cryptographic toolbox supporting TLS communication.

Designed to meet Common Criteria EAL4+ requirements, the MAXQ1061 empowers engineers to quickly design security into their products and protect the endpoints of a network.

The MAXQ1061 integrates a comprehensive cryptographic toolbox that provides full support for a wide spectrum of security needs, ranging from key generation and storage, to digital signature and encryption up to SSL/TLS/DTLS. It can also support secure boot for most host processors.

For extreme industrial environments, the MAXQ1061 operates across the -40-degree Celsius to +109-degree Celsius temperature range the widest compared to other similar products and is available in TSSOP-14.

The MAXQ1061 embeds 32KB of user programmable secure EEPROM for storing certificates, public keys, private and secret keys, and arbitrary user data. The EEPROM is managed through a flexible file system enabling custom security policy enforcement. Its cryptographic algorithms include ECC (up to NIST P-521), ECDSA signature generation and verification, SHA-2 (up to SHA-512) secure hash, AES-128/-256 with support for ECB, CBC, and CCM modes, and MAC digest.

The MAXQ1061 also provides a separate hardware AES engine over SPI, supporting AES-GCM and AES-ECB modes, and that can be used to off-load a host processor for fast processing.

“The MAXQ1061 provides a hardware root of trust; its comprehensive set of cryptographic functions fulfill the key security requirements of the embedded systems of tomorrow.” Said Christopher Tremlet, Executive Business Manager, Embedded Security, Maxim Integrated.

“With the MAXQ1061, our customers have a trusted device that will not only guarantee the integrity and authenticity of the system, but also secure communications.”

“The MAXQ1061 provides ideal hardware security to complement our software solution for the Floodgate Defender Appliance allowing customers to easily secure their legacy equipment economically,”as said Ernie Rudolph, Executive Vice President, Icon Labs.
