Tiempo Secure and Menta announce strategic partnership to enhance security solutions

Montbonnot & Valbonne, France – July 2nd, 2024, Tiempo Secure and Menta partner to provide a uniquely flexible, certified, embedded Secure Enclave – eFPGA IP solution.

Tiempo Secure, a leading provider of high-end secure IP semiconductor solutions, and Menta, a recognized leader in embedded FPGA IPs for SoC, ASIC, or ASSP design, proudly announce a unique innovation partnership, aimed at providing a cutting-edge, flexible, certified, Secure Enclave – eFPGA security IP solution. Leveraging their combined expertise in embedded FPGA and secure hardware cryptography, they are developing something extraordinarily new for the market from a security, flexibility, and certification perspective and as an additional response to the EU’s Cyber Resilience Act and the US’s Cyber Trust Mark. The scope of applications covered by the solution includes SoC, HSM, Digital Authentication, and Aerospace.

Part of the uniqueness of this new combined security IP solution lies in its increased functionality and cryptographic algorithm agility, enabling updating after tape-out and even in the field, to counter evolving cyber threats. SoC manufacturers will benefit from unparalleled flexibility, and third-party software providers can leverage the RISC-V CPU to facilitate software development. By adding an eFPGA core to the cryptographic engine, the TESIC-510 FPGA Secure Enclave IP provides the highest level of security available through Common Criteria EAL5+ certified cryptographic libraries, coupled with algorithmic flexibility and performance.

“We are very enthusiastic about the new augmented solution that our collaboration with Menta will enable us to bring to the market. The innovative approach brings unique added value to chipset vendors. They can manage the security of their platform during the entire product life cycle, including in the field, while taking account of their end customers’ requirements“, commented Mikaël Dubreucq – Tiempo Secure’s VP Global Sales & Marketing.

“We are very excited about today’s announcement because of the innovation opportunities that this partnership enables and because it brings together two key IP experts with complementary product offerings. Our unique eFPGA-Secure Enclave solution is the best solution for our customers to de-risk cryptography for now and the future”, added Yoan Dupret – Menta’s Managing Director & CTO.
