Cryptography Research and MasterCard agree on DPA countermeasures
This follows Cryptography’s accusation against Visa of using its patented countermeasures in September, 2008. It ended with an agreement settling the litigation against Visa, under which Visa will become a licensee of countermeasures to DPA. The license fee and other settlement terms are confidential (cf. Smart Insights #08-40).
Cryptography Research recently announced licenses with Infineon, Renesas, and NXP for their smart card semiconductor products.
