Abstract:


Cryptography and Security hardware architecture designing is in essential need for efficient power utilization which is achieved earlier by giving a range of trade- off between speed and power consumption. This paper presents the initiative of considering subthreshold SRAM memory modules to gain ultra-low-power capable systems. The paper presents improving existing crypto security architectures to reconfigurable domain-specific SRAM memory designs. It is found that reliability is still a problem not solved; however, we start this paper idea to design flexible crypto hardware to gain the performance as well as the reduced power consumption.
