Encrypted Network Accelerator Solutions Partnership Announced by Xiphera and MLE

Xiphera, Ltd, known for developing hardware-based security solutions utilizing standardized cryptographic algorithms, and Missing Link Electronics (MLE), renowned for optimizing CPUs and enhancing software-rich system stacks through Domain-Specific Architectures, have joined forces to unveil Encrypted Network Accelerator Solutions (ENAS). Through this collaboration, Xiphera and MLE provide a secure and dependable connection between devices over TCP/IP with their newly introduced joint solutions.

The ENAS, Encrypted Network Accelerator Solutions, combines MLE’s highly modular TCP/UDP/IP Network Protocol Accelerator Platform (NPAP) with Xiphera’s TLS 1.3 security protocol solution. While accelerating the device network up to 10/25/50 GigE, the solution implements Transport Layer Security (TLS), a cryptographic security protocol providing end-to-end data security, on top of the MLE’s Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) layer for a more secure and accelerated network communication. The solution is delivered as an IP core for FPGA circuits.

The Encrypted Network Accelerator Solutions are best suited for applications where the highest security level and high-speed data transmission are required, such as critical communications in defense, space technology, and energy production and distribution. Since the TCP/IP stack and the TLS 1.3 security protocol – including importantly both key exchange and key management – are both executed entirely in hardware, the joint solution has both scalable high-speed performance and minimized attack surface, especially when compared to a software-based approach.

“As mission-critical, defense, and energy applications are migrating to AI technology, FPGAs will be the only reliable solution able to provide high-speed data processing at high-level security. ENAS is a great combination of secure (TLS), fast, and reliable (TCP) communication.” said Andreas Schuler, Director Applications, MLE. “We’re helping some industry leaders in these fields to adopt ENAS to enable AI in their next-gen solutions.”

“We are excited about the secure FPGA-based connectivity solutions enabled by ENAS”, said Matti Tommiska, co-founder and CEO of Xiphera. “The increasing demands for both bandwidth and security will benefit from the joint solution developed in the partnership between MLE and Xiphera.”
