Cryptography: Is A Hardware Or Software Implementation More Effective?

Sept. 15, 2021
This Technical Tutorial examines the pros and cons of both hardware and software approaches and walks the user through why dedicated cryptographic hardware provides a better solution for most applications.
This tutorial is part of a series that is designed to provide a quick study guide in cryptography for a product development engineer. Each segment takes an engineering rather than theoretical approach on the topic. In this installment, you'll learn the difference between hardware and software implementations of cryptographic solutions and get insights on some common applications.
