Securing our Connected World

We are a technology company working to protect, connect, and authenticate the future of semiconductors. Emerging computing, such as Artificial Intelligence, the Internet of Things, and Automotive Applications, all rely heavily on networked devices that remain vulnerable to hardware attacks. Our vision is to provide foundational bit-cell level security for semiconductors that safeguard our devices in this ever more connected world.

Hardware Security Expertise

We are a team of dedicated hardware security specialists who research, design, and develop PUF-based protection for the semiconductor market. We are a subsidiary of eMemory, one of the world’s largest Semiconductor IP companies. They have over 20 years of experience delivering process-dependent technology and provide access to their widely qualified library of IPs across multiple foundry platforms. Together, we’re delivering our award-winning Security IPs to customers across a wide variety of applications and processes today.

Protecting the Future of Semiconductors

Authentication and verification are an essential part of any security ecosystem. There’s now a growing need for scalable solutions for data protection at the chip level. Our inborn cryptographic key generation and storage can produce a unique identity for every chip. This Hardware Root of Trust reduces risks, removes unnecessary processes, and can prevent counterfeiting or reverse engineering. Here at PUFsecurity, we have complete hardware security solutions that are helping safeguard the next generation of semiconductors.
