Your fabless chip design company
Creators of the first open secure chip
Trust in what you can verify as a community.
How can you trust a design that you or independent security experts cannot audit themselves? Traditional hardware security solutions are behind NDA’s and require your blind trust.
We offer secure chip designs that are open to audit and share the results of.
A mindset based on Kerckhoffs' principle
" Design your system assuming that your opponents know it in detail."
We envision security through transparency. This allows for independent auditing to address any security risks. There is public accountability to make stronger designs and innovate towards the best possible solution.
Current hardware security relies on obscurity as one of the main methods of protection. When security details are a secret, where is the accountability in removing weak designs? How can better solutions be found without an honest try against real life attack scenarios?
