RSA Key Generation Using DeepCover Secure Microcontroller (MAXQ1850)

By: Reza Ahmadi

Abstract: Maxim's RSA key-generation library provides an easy-to-use interface to generate RSA key pairs with the DeepCover® Secure Microcontroller (MAXQ1850). Designed for low-cost security applications, the MAXQ1850 microcontroller's security features include RSA. The RSA library uses the modulo arithmetic accelerator (MAA) which provides cryptographic operations up to 2048 bits and allows the user to compute a set of operations that are important for many cryptographic operations. The article also explains why the MAXQ1850-KIT evaluation (EV) kit and the CrossWorks development environment provide an ideal platform to develop secure applications.
