HSM for Automotive (for SoC/ASIC/FPGA)

The Hardware Security Module (HSM) is the ISO 26262 Functional Safety standard compliant solution for automotive applications, designed and licensed by Silex Insight. The customizable and comprehensively featured HSM is implemented for use on SoC, ASIC or FPGA. and removes the need for a dedicated HSM device.

As the connectivity of industrial systems, cars and their subsystems (like ADAS, autonomous driving, infotainment) is growing, so is the need for data integrity and system authentication. A very important aspect of this embedded security is a hardware security module (HSM), a security enclave that provides secure key management and cryptographic processing.


Removes the need for dedicated HSM device


This HSM IP module removes the need for a dedicated HSM device and it incorporates 2 solutions:

• The HSM hardware IP, to be implemented in programmable logic and ready to interface with the processing system.

• A software stack containing the HSM firmware, HSM driver code and an interface layer allowing integration into the AUTOSAR framework.


  • Secure key provisioning
  • Secure key storage
  • Secure counter
  • Flexible anti-tampering
  • Easy to integrate (AXI interface)
  • Cryptographic operations offload
    • PK engine
    • Symmetric engine
    • Random number generator
  • Flexible and scalable platform
  • NIST & OSCCA compliant
  • PUF support
  • Autosar integration



  • AD/ADAS security
  • Infotainment security
  • Radar/LiDAR security


The future of automotive security

HSM IP – Superior solution

Configurable/Scalable/Flexible solution

The hardware security module can be scaled and configured to match any requirement, even for the most demanding applications. The size and performance of the solution can be adapted for a perfect application fit while leaving room in the SoC/ASIC/FPGA for other critical applications.
