SCAN is a class of formal languages for compression, encryption and information hiding. We have previously studied and reported separate hardware implementations of SCAN compression and encryption. This paper presents initial results on the design of a complete single-chip system for the SCAN compression, encryption and information hiding algorithm using the stretch technology with reconfigurable and fixed resources. The result is a simple, low cost, embeddable core combining all three operations seamlessly and the design was fully mapped to the stretch technology.
