In memory-computing (IMC) architectures provide a much needed solution to energy-efficiency barriers posed by Von-Neumann computing due to movement of data between the processor and the memory. Emerging non-volatile memories (NVM) such as Resistive RAM (ReRAM) implemented in a crossbar array are promising substrates to realize IMC due to excellent High Resistance State (HRS) to Low Resistance State (LRS) ratios and high-densities. Hardware security primitives such as SHA-3 require heavy data traffic between processing elements and memory. Therefore, they can be benefited substantially by in-memory acceleration. We propose SHINE, a high performance and area efficient hardware implementation of the Keccak function that forms the core of SHA-3 by exploiting ReRAM-based IMC. SHINE implements various functions in a Sum of Product (SOP) form in the crossbar array architecture. Simulation results show that it cuts down energy by ∼90.5% and increases throughput by 1.5X to 2.8X as compared to conventional CMOS based implementations such as  and .
