VIA ACE-CNX Customized Security Solutions

 

The customer-centered VIA ACE-CNX service allows VIA's team of security experts to work closely with customers, implementing data encryption through the hardware, as opposed to software. This means that the encryption happens on-the-fly and far faster and less obtrusive than competing software solutions. This is entirely unique to VIA; no other processor on the market today can support these security features from within the CPU.

 

VIA ACE-CNX is currently working to implement internationally established AES data encryption standards across a range of scenarios that includes software and content protection on gaming and kiosk platforms and secure data transfer and storage in advanced fleet management applications.

VIA ACE: Advanced Cryptographic Engine

 

All VIA Nano, VIA C7 and VIA Eden processors have an integrated security engine that can be used to encrypt and decrypt data on-the-fly. The Advanced Cryptographic Engine also provides a range of crucial security features that includes AES (Advanced Encryption Standard) Encryption, an encryption standard adopted by the U.S. government that comprises three block ciphers and is now used worldwide.

 

The VIA Advanced Cryptographic Engine features a Secure Hash Algorithm (SHA-1 and SHA-256) which is published by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), widely accepted as being one of the most secure algorithms available. A Montgomery Multiplier is also included along with NX Execute Protection and a random number generator.
