RISC-V Foundation Announces Security Standing Committee, Calls Industry to Join in Efforts

BERKELEY, Calif. , Jul. 02, 2018 – 

The RISC-V Foundation, a non-profit corporation controlled by its members to drive forward the adoption and implementation of the free and open RISC-V instruction set architecture (ISA), today announced the formation of the Security Standing Committee to bring together industry leaders to share findings, develop consensus around best security practices and identify potential security improvements for RISC-V based Internet of Things (IoT) devices, embedded systems, and machine learning implementations. The Committee includes 25 RISC-V Foundation members, including Berkeley Architecture Group, Bluespec, CSIRO's Data61, Dover, Draper, Esperanto Technologies, Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Madras, Intrinsic ID, Galois, Hex Five Security, Microsemi, Micron Technology, NXP, Rambus, SecureRF Corporation, SiFive and Western Digital.

Numerous RISC-V member organizations have already introduced security solutions such as Dover Microsystems CoreGuard and SecureRF WalnutDSA. The Security Standing Committee, chaired by Rambus, has already contributed a draft specification for cryptographic extensions to the RISC-V ISA and a proposed approach to trusted execution environments for deeply embedded RISC-V devices. In addition, the ongoing collaborative work in other technical working groups on specifications for the RISC-V privileged architecture, vector extensions and instruction set compliance demonstrates the high degree of industry interest and cooperation in security.

"As the number of connected devices grows exponentially and new security vulnerabilities like Meltdown and Spectre emerge, it's become increasingly important to develop more robust security approaches. The RISC-V community has the historic opportunity to leverage a new platform for security innovation, leveraging the latest knowledge and contributions from leading industry and academic experts that comprise the expansive RISC-V ecosystem," said Rick O'Connor, executive director of the non-profit RISC-V Foundation. "The RISC-V Foundation's Security Standing Committee is a declaration and call to action for industry leaders, universities and government organizations to join the Foundation and work with us to build a more secure world for the benefit of everyone."
