Elliptic Technologies Delivers Hardware Root of Trust

by Jim Turley

Sometimes even the circuit designer doesn’t know how the chip works. And that can be a good thing.

Supply and demand go hand in hand. Where demand exists, supply will meet it. Some people demand they have dinosaur fossils, which leads to the interesting underworld of fossil smuggling. One of the more significant examples in recent memory is the case of…

Not sure it's a good analogy (the "road" thing). The way we write software (C/C++) is very dependent on how the machines work, so there's a lot of interdependency that shouldn't be there in the "stack". The "top" of the current stack is reminding me of ho…
