 Despite AES is surpass in security than DES, it is still rare to be implemented in smart cards, due to the reason of deficient in AES coprocessors. Here a chip operation system (COS) called NexCard, which derived from Microsoft’s Windows COS, is used as the AES implement platform. After a suitable COS architecture design for AES and methodology of efficient memory usage, the simulation result shows that direct embedding AES Encryption may attain 0.56ms at system clock 15 MHz on the INFINEON… CONTINUE READING
