This paper describes a novel RISC microprocessor that can be utilised to rapidly develop a reprogrammable and high performance embedded security-processing system in SoC designs. Generic and innovative algorithm-specific instructions have been developed for a wide range of private-key and hash algorithms. To the authors' knowledge, this is the first generic cryptographic microprocessor to be reported in the literature.
