Meeting report

For the past year, the teams from the Slovak University of Technology and the University of Malta have worked on the implementation of the protocol recently proposed by Rainer Steinwandt, Angel L. Pérez del Pozo and Maribel Gonzalez Vasco. The implementation uses the SEcube chip for computing and storing secret information. So far, the teams worked mainly with the ARM Cortex-M4 processor provided in the SEcube chip. Apart from the ARM Cortex-M4 processor, the SEcube chip also contains a FPGA and a smart card. In order to learn how to make the best use of these additional features, Dr. Mark Vella organized a meeting ( Zoom video conference ) with Antonio Varriale from Blu5.  During the meeting, Antonio Varriale gave the participants valuable advice on using the FPGA and the smart card provided in the SEcube chip and discussed participants’ questions in detail.
