Hash functions are special cryptographic algorithms, which are applied wherever message integrity and authentication are critical. Implementations of these functions are cryptographic primitives widely used in common cryptographic schemes and security protocols such as Internet Protocol Security (IPSec) and Virtual Private Network (VPN). In this paper, a(More)
In this paper, the design and implementation of an optimized hardware architecture in terms of speed and memory requirements for computing the tile-based 2D forward discrete wavelet transform for the JPEG2000 image compression standard, are described. The proposed architecture is based on a well-known architecture template for calculating the 2D forward(More)
Many cryptographic primitives that are used in cryptographic schemes and security protocols such as SET, PKI, IPSec, and VPNs utilize hash functions, which form a special family of cryptographic algorithms. Applications that use these security schemes are becoming very popular as time goes by and this means that some of these applications call for higher(More)
We present an automated framework that partitions the code and data types for the needs of data management in an object-oriented source code. The goal is to identify the crucial data types from data management perspective and separate these from the rest of the code. In this way, the design complexity is reduced allowing the designer to easily focus on the(More)
In this paper, we propose a methodology for partitioning and mapping computational intensive applications in reconfigurable hardware blocks of different granularity. A generic hybrid reconfigurable architecture is considered so as the methodology can be applicable to a large number of heterogeneous reconfigurable platforms. The methodology mainly consists(More)
In this paper, we present a software framework that implements a formalized methodology for partitioning Digital Signal Processing applications between reconfigurable hardware blocks of different granularity. A hybrid generic reconfigurable architecture is considered, so that the methodology is applicable to a large variety of hybrid reconfigurable systems.(More)
