The Acalis CPU872 offers the strongest protection available for software and systems. Threats to software and systems begin with reverse engineering, which enables cloning, malicious insertion and development of countermeasures. Acalis protects not only on-chip software but entire systems against tampering or reverse engineering.
The Acalis CPU872 has direct application wherever software and systems must be protected. To ensure that components and software throughout a system have not been modified or compromised, the CPU872 can be used in a supply chain as a secure anchor point. In communications systems, Acalis ensures secure encryption key generation and management across wired or wireless connections. In addition, by applying sensitive algorithms and data in a secure mobile system, the CPU872 can also be used to perform intelligent audio and video processing.
