Microsemi and Thales e-Security Announces Hardware Security Module Reseller Agreement to Protect Customer Revenue

Microsemi Corporation announced it has signed a reseller agreement with Thales e-Security. Using Thales e-Security nShield hardware security modules, custom firmware and the security protocols built into every Microsemi SmartFusion™2 system-on-chip field programmable gate array (FPGA) and IGLOO™2 FPGA, customers can automatically prevent overbuilding of their systems in any manufacturing facility anywhere in the world, saving millions of dollars in lost revenue. Thales nShield HSMs in combination with custom firmware running on the nShield generates a unique authorization code for each SmartFusion2 or IGLOO2 device. The authorization code can only be decrypted by the device for which it was generated. Within the HSM security boundary a device limit count is used to control the number of authorization codes generated and hence the number of systems built. This agreement, which makes Microsemi a certified reseller of Thales nShield HSMs, strengthens the relationship between Microsemi and Thales and extends the trusted supply chain assurance infrastructure used in-house to the end customer. Microsemi has been using Thales nShield HSMs as part of its manufacturing flow for SmartFusion2 and IGLOO2 devices to inject unique device IDs, device keys and x.509 device certificates. Allowing Microsemi customers to use the same HSMs in their manufacturing flow closes the loop on supply chain assurance. This enables the company's customers in the communications, industrial and defense markets to trust that their deployed systems are authentic and utilized precisely as planned. Overbuilding prevention is now completely automated. The U.S. Chamber of Commerce estimates that intellectual property (IP) threats cost domestic companies more than $250 billion per year in lost revenues. Hardware security modules effectively remove the vulnerability posed by insiders, particularly those within manufacturing locations, enabling offshore manufacturing without threat of overbuilding, cloning or reverse engineering—or incorporating classified data during non-classified manufacturing—while maintaining confidentiality of the sensitive data and preventing tampering such as insertion of a Trojan horse. A hardware security module is a tamper-resistant device designed to generate keys securely, encrypt FPGA bitstreams in a secure environment, facilitate the use of customer owned sensitive key material and execute standard and custom algorithms requiring the use of protected keys.
