Abstract
Trusted DAVE project’s main purpose was the development of a trusted device for authentication and verification. Analysis involved in this R&D project determined the following choices of technologies: contact smart card, capacitive fingerprint sensor, Intel StrongARM SA-1110 CPU, Intel Flash memory, Neutrino™ realtime operating system from QNX, use of the Five-Pass Authentication Protocol, etc. And, more specifically for tamper protection: multi-layer flexible printed circuit, metal case, special stacking of the printed circuit, use of double access memory, Shamir power supply, etc. A prototype and a demonstration system were developed. Although different to some extent from the designed device, this proof of concept helped evaluate performance and feasibility. It will also be useful in demonstrating the concept to other parties involved.
