SAN JOSE, Calif. - Elliptic Technologies Inc., a provider of security semiconductor IP and software, has announced the appointment of Vijay Dube as the company’s president and chief executive.
He succeeds Rick White, who had led Elliptic over the past five years. Dube was formerly COO at Wavesat, a 4G broadband wireless company.
Ottawa, Canada-based Elliptic Technologies recently expanded its line of security protocol accelerators with the introduction of SPAcc-LTE, a security processing engine for the rapidly developing 4G markets.
Elliptic’s CLP-620 SPAcc-LTE is a security engine that supports all confidentiality and integrity algorithms required for 3GPP/LTE/LTE-Advanced protocols. These algorithms are based on ciphers like AES, SNOW 3G, ZUC, and legacy ciphers such as Kasumi to support older networks.
The CLP-620 is targeted at high-performance base stations, handsets and femtocell applications. The engine addresses the complex security requirements of multi-function high-performance SoC architectures with many powerful features including QoS for enhanced traffic management support and virtualization designed to allow sharing between multiple CPUs.
Last week, Elliptic unveiled a tiered family of security protocol processors (SPP) that support all major security protocols, such as SSL/TLS/DTLS, IPsec, 3GPP/LTE-Advanced, WiMax, MACsec, SRTP, storage and PKI.
The SPP include the following:
•SPP-SA (Symmetric/Asymmetric) Processing Engines: combine the diverse symmetric cryptographic offload capabilities with the asymmetric functions of a Public Key Accelerator (PKA) and the capabilities of a TRNG, creating a single very efficient, multi-purpose crypto offload resource for ASICs and SoCs.
•SPP-PDU (Protocol Data Unit) Processors: add packet processing support for specific high bandwidth security protocols, such as SSL/TLS/DTLS, IPsec, MACsec, 3GPP/LTE-A, WiMax, PKI or SRTP.
•SPP-MPDU (Multi-PDU) Processors: performance-optimized multi-protocol engines in support of a variety of security applications.
