Abstract
The CipherProcessor architecture demonstrates reconfigurable opcodes unique to a specific processor or dynamically to a parallel environment and defined uniquely at compile time. Starting from a base of reconfigurable knowledge, Accord Solutions Inc willdevelop a reference design and demonstrate its viability. It incorporates an effective mechanism for delivery of compiled unique opcode binaries from development centers, with operation in standalone, multiuser and parallel modes. Accord will producespecification and performance projections from the CipherProcessor reference design, targeting advanced reconfigurable FPGAs, matrix driven array processors or System-on-Chip VLIW processors. A Cipherprocessor environment with a complete Fortran/ C++/ Cpath will be specified. The cost of compromise of the DoD's HPCMP National challenge software may be the cost of war, because application of this technology by enemies could lead to political instability. Less a threat but economically important iscommercial software piracy. Protection of critical computational technology areas(CTAs) is thus vital. Cipherprocessor is a reference design that enables our embedded supercomputer products through software protection. In addition, licensing is planned tomajor processor chip manufacturers.
