PLEASANTON, Calif., 16 March 2009. CPU Technology Inc. (CPU Tech) in Pleasanton, Calif., is introducing the Acalis CPU872 secure processor that addresses the need for anti tamper technology in mission- and life-critical commercial and military system applications.

The processor samples, evaluation boards, and software development kits are available for developing secure computing and secure software in electronic systems. The Acalis CPU872 trusted and secure semiconductor helps protect critical program information as required by DOD Instruction 5200.39 that defines anti tamper.

The instruction for secure electronic applications says anti tamper means systems engineering activities intended to deter and/or delay exploitation of critical technologies in a U.S. defense system to impede countermeasure development, unintended technology transfer, or alteration of a system.

Designed with a secure methodology and fabricated at the IBM trusted foundry, the Acalis CPU872 deters reverse engineering of software and systems, and so also deters cloning, malicious insertion, and development of countermeasures. Acalis protects not only on-chip software but also entire systems against tampering or reverse engineering.
