Full name of the project: Innovative, hardware - software component, based on a dedicated i ntegrated circuit andsoftware to perform various cryptographic application, withthe particular attention paid to electronic identification systems with the high level of confidence 

Acronym:  IDSoCIDSoC logo

Co-financing: Project is co-financed by The National Centre for Research and Development 

Project duration: 36 months  (started on 01.09.2017)

Consortium members: National Institute of Telecommunication (leader) and Warsaw University of TechnologyNCBIR logo

Total co-financing: 18 328 814,00 PLN

Co-finacing for NIT: 4 061 460,00 PLN

Purpose of the project: The aim of the project is to develop and manufacture an innovative single-chip secure processor – IDSoC. The developed system on chip will be composed of a proprietary application processor with an increased fault tolerance and security level. The processor will include a non-volatile memory area dedicated to storing both embedded software and sensitive user data, such as biometric data. Thanks to the appropriate error detection and correction systems as well as hardware encryption, the non-volatile memory will ensure data integrity and confidentiality. In addition, the integrated IDSoC system will be equipped with a set of peripherals for hardware cryptographic support. During the project, it is planned to develop a true random number generator (TRNG) and to carry out research on the possibility of the physical unclonable function (PUF) utilization for the purpose of identification and authentication. It is also anticipated to develop a set of sensors for the monitoring of the integrated circuit’s environmental conditions (e.g. temperature, supply voltage, clock frequency). The mechanisms of the external interference detection in the system’s physical structure will also be employed, which will significantly protect the system features against unauthorized access attempts and will prevent from the acquisition of sensitive data. The IDSoC system, to be developed during the project, might be utilized in the applications in which the storage and processing of sensitive data is required, e.g. in electronic identification systems (electronic identity card, e-passport). The inherent part of the IDSoC system will be its dedicated firmware, developed in the course of the project. The firmware will support and enable all the system’s functions, most notably the electronic identification with high level of confidence and other advanced cryptographic procedures.The aim of the project is to develop and manufacture an innovative single-chip secure processor – IDSoC.
