TISG trustable image sensor gateware

FPGA based camera providing encrypted video streams

The TISG project is set to develop a groundbreaking open-source, FPGA-based camera system, focusing on the implementation of the MIPI-CSI2 standard for connecting a wide range of image sensors to FPGAs. The development process involves leveraging open-source FPGA tools and formal verification methods to ensure robust security and functionality. The primary purpose is to create a secure, versatile, and accessible video processing platform that addresses current security vulnerabilities in video-based systems. By eliminating reliance on proprietary software and enabling formal hardware verification, the project aims to significantly reduce the risk of backdoors and cyber threats. The general public will benefit from enhanced security in areas like home surveillance, public safety, and infrastructure monitoring. Additionally, the open-source nature of the project promotes innovation and inclusivity, allowing developers worldwide to contribute and extend the technology. This democratization of advanced video processing technology not only fosters global collaboration but also paves the way for further advancements in various fields reliant on reliable and secure video surveillance.
