CHERI security technology

What is CHERI?

Capability Hardware Enhanced RISC Instructions

As defined by the University of Cambridge, CHERI extends conventional hardware Instruction-Set Architectures (ISAs) with new architectural features to enable fine-grained memory protection and highly scalable software compartmentalization.

Increasing processor security
with Custom Compute

*CVE stands for Common Vulnerability and Exposure as defined and explained here.

Bringing security to everyone
with Custom Compute

Privacy violation, reputational damage, financial loss, or even threat to human lives from an unsafe and unsecure product are not acceptable, be it IIoT, automotive, aerospace, or any other consumer product.

Using Codasip Studio, we have added built-in, fine-grained memory protection by extending the RISC-V ISA with CHERI-based custom instructions. To enable the use of these instructions, we are also delivering the software environment to take advantage of CHERI technology, bringing a full software development flow to add memory protection.

Authentically CHERI, distinctly Codasip
