In this paper, we discuss the use of System Generator to design a reconfigurable video encryption system. It includes the design of the AES (Advanced Encryption System) and Enigma encryption cores. As a result of using this design flow, we are able to efficiently implement our system and algorithms with a significant improvement on traditional design times, without compromise for performance.
