Codasip to Offer Secure Boot Solutions with Veridify Tools

Shelton, Connecticut and Munich, Germany – March 30th, 2021 – Codasip, the leading supplier of customizable RISC-V processor IP, and Veridify Security, a leader in securing and managing low-resource devices at the edge of the IoT, today announced they have partnered to provide secure boot functionality for the Codasip Low Power Embedded RISC-V processors. The new security features, enabled by Veridify’s quantum-resistant security methods, will be available in the second half of 2021.

The Codasip Low Power Embedded RISC-V processors are small and energy-efficient embedded cores. Veridify’s fast and ultra-low power security tools are small enough to address this family of Codasip processors. Using Veridify’s methods, Codasip customers can easily verify that the firmware used by these processors during the boot process is authentic. Veridify’s methods are also quantum-resistant against all known threats, an important consideration for Codasip customers implementing these processors in long-life applications like remote monitoring systems, surveillance cameras and smart meters. In addition, Veridify’s tools can be used to enable additional security features like secure firmware updates, authentication, and data protection.

“Security is an important aspect in every embedded device,” points out Karel Masařík, Codasip Founder and CEO. “We are pleased to announce the partnership with Veridify that brings together Codasip’s best-in-class embedded RISC-V processors and Veridify’s security algorithm. Such a platform fulfills the highest security requirements.”

“Codasip’s 32-bit RISC-V processors provide rapidly customizable, high-performance solutions for their diverse global customer base. Our software security tools complement this approach and offer Codasip customers differentiated, quantum-resistant security functions like secure boot and secure firmware update,” said Louis Parks, Veridify Chairman and CEO. “Codasip customers can now leverage the many benefits of the Low Power Embedded processors and be confident knowing they can use these security functions in their applications to reduce security vulnerabilities today and in the future.”

Codasip’s range of embedded processors are available in a range of microarchitectures (1, 3 & 5 series) and configuration options.
