In recent years the importance of security in information technology has increased drastically. The main reason is the obvious demand for security software and hardware in growing applications like mobile telephones, set top boxes, wireless networks, smartcards and other distribution systems for entertainment and information. In addition to higher processing speed security hardware offers higher physical manipulation protection than software solutions. In connection with the growing core-based system design methods a cryptographic reuse library based on VHDL is presented in this contribution.
