IP core provides encryption for data storage

Algotronix

XTS-AES IP core

The XTS-AES IP core provides encryption for data-storage applications and can be configured to exceed the demands of SATA 3.0 and USB 3.0, as well as smaller-footprint configurations.

It meets the NIST SP800-38E recommendation published in January 2010, as well as the IEEE 1619-2007 standard.

The low-cost core features a hardware AES encryption solution that provides AES-128 or AES-256 for hard drives or memory sticks.

Data-storage encryption is based on the XTS mode of AES.

The algorithm includes a Tweakable encryption technique to provide confidentiality, with no expansion of data size.

This ensures that identical data will be stored as different patterns in each sector of the storage medium.

The core supports all the popular FPGA ranges or ASIC technology and the IP is supplied as source code, allowing customers to select from different modes and parameterise the performance.

The core includes a testbench implementing the XTS Verification System used for NIST validation.
