Kameleon Security Launches Open Platform Approach to Hardware Security


Kameleon is a semiconductor start-up, founded in 2019, working on developing an advanced hardware security platform known as the Security Processing Unit (ProSPU). It launched officially in July 2021. Targeted at servers, data centers, and cloud computing, the chip is a separate security processor that offers a hardware root of trust (based on Open Compute Project (OCP) security specification for Root of Trust): a compute platform with runtime security, which not only supports Kameleon applications, but has been built openly to also support third party applications, and various crypto services (including key management) to securely store keys and data, and to provide a secure channel to cloud services.

The Rise of Security Processing Units


The security processor market is rarely qualified as a vibrant one, and solutions like those proposed by Kameleon are a breath of fresh air into an otherwise stagnant market. Until the advent of the Internet of Things (IoT), types and form factors remain…
