Abstract: Security is one of the most important features of industrial products. Cryptographic algorithms are mainly used for this purpose to obtain confidentiality and integrity of data in industry. One of the main concerns of researchers in designing cryptographic algorithms is efficiency in either software implementation or hardware implementation. However, the efficiency of some well-known algorithms is highly questionable. The main goal of this paper is to present a novel processor architecture called CIARP (stands for Crypto Instruction-Aware RISC Processor) being feasible for high speed implementation of low throughput cryptographic algorithms. CIARP has been designed based on a proposed instruction set named Crypto Specific Instruction Set (CSIS), that can speed up encryption and decryption processes of data.
