Problem Addressed

Traditional cryptographic schemes typically “scramble” or “unscramble” information using a data-permutation algorithm and a short cryptographic key. These keys need to be carefully crafted and managed to preserve the security of the scheme. Although many cryptographic schemes have been standardized and implemented efficiently in software and hardware, they are not universally available due to the lack of broad solutions for key management and the challenge of integrating various cryptographic and key management components into a holistically secure design. To address this issue the Inventors developed SHAMROCK, a self-contained, integrated general-purpose design for a cryptography and key-management solution.
