ISSCC 2018: MIT’s low-power hardware crypto RISC-V IoT processor

In recent years, IoT devices have been plagued with security issues. Memory and energy constraints of those low-power devices mean there is very little headroom for complex security implementations. At ISSCC 2018, a team of MIT researchers has attempted to address this problem with their low-power fully in-hardware crypto engine IoT RISC-V processor.
