In this article we define and evaluate a set of requirements for custom energy-efficient programmable ASIC intended to be used in digital security applications. We discuss our practical experience of development and implementation of such ASICs using modern semiconductor technology. We present data on cryptography performance and energy efficiency of our ASICs which are already created and projected characteristics for future chips. Performance and energy efficiency values of our ASICs for hashing and stream encryption/decryption algorithms are compared against values for commercially available general purpose CPUs, GPUs and FPGAs. We conclude that our approach with development of custom programmable ASICs for cryptographic applications is viable and have several advantages over general purpose computing systems. On a number of targets, the solutions being developed are an order of magnitude superior to universal computing systems in terms of performance per watt.
