Jetstream security IP core algorithms get NIST certification

Security silicon IP provider Jetstream Media Technologies announced today that the algorithms of its security IP cores have successfully passed the Cryptographic Algorithm Validation Program, a strict governmental testing program for the validation of semiconductor algorithms.

The Federal Information Processing Standard’s testing standards were established by the United States National Institute of Science and Technology to make sure that products acquired by federal agencies meet rigorous cryptographic standards. The CAVP is a prerequisite to the Cryptographic Module Validation Program, which is governed by the Federal Information Processing Standards 140-2. Products that are FIPS 140-2 validated are eligible to be purchased by the U.S. government and its agencies.

The following is a list of Jetstream Media Technologies validated IP cores:

” JetAES – Tiny Core – 8-bit datapath
” JetAES – Mini Core – 16-bit datapath
” JetAES – Standard Core – 32-bit datapath
” JetAES – Fast Core – 128-bit datapath
” JetAES – Ultra Fast Core – 128-bit pipelined datapath
” JetDES – Triple DES
” JetCCM – CCM 1 – For IEEE 802.11i WPA2 security
” JetCCM – CCM 4 – For IEEE 802.15.4-2006 and ZigBeeâ„? security
” JetCCM – CCM 7 – High Speed AES-CCM for IPsec security payload
” JetHASH – Secure hashing for SHA-1, SHA-224, SHA-256, SHA 384, and SHA-512
