Abstract
"This Phase I SBIR project will develop an innovative, high-performance, secure processing architecture for system-on-a-chip (SoC) devices used in defense electronics systems. Athena's security technology will integrate compression and encryption, andenable end-to-end secure processing in advanced defense systems, providing significantly improved tampering and reverse engineering resistance when compared to existing technologies. Athena's security technology will also make it possible to revokespecific defense systems in the event that they fall into the hands of an adversary. Athena will develop a solution that will allow all defense electronic systems designers to transparently include end-to-end security in their products. The commercialvalue of the developed technology is substantial since it will provide anti-cloning capabilities for products constructed from standard product electronic components. The end-to-end data security architecture proposed will also enable robust digital rightsmanagement (DRM), which is a critical technology requirement for information content providers."
