Veridify Future-Proof Security for RL78 IoT Edge Devices

Renesas Alliance Partner Solution


Veridify’s security tools provide authentication and data protection solutions that are ideal for protecting connected low resource RL78 microcontrollers. The security tools are fast, energy efficient and possess a small footprint that require a much lower RAM/ROM compared to legacy methods. The software protocols are easy and quick to implement without the hassle and cost of accelerators or additional processor support.

Key Features

  • Easily enable powerful security functions like secure boot and secure firmware update, on RL78 based devices
  • Compact and ultra low energy methods are ideal for the RL78 series and the low resource IoT devices connected
  • Quantum resistance delivers future proof authentication and data protection
  • 9X faster than ECC for superior performance and lower energy consumption
  • Reduces time and cost to market entry with the software available today
