BACKDOOR RESEARCH

HARDWARE TROJANS RESEARCH FOR SUPPLY CHAIN SECURIZATION

THE PROBLEM:

Backdoor research

When a chip maker relies on a third-party for the manufacturing of its chips, he needs to verify that security is also guaranteed at this stage. Indeed, Backdoors could potentially be implemented during manufacturing to retain access to debugging facilities offering to an attacker the capacity to easily take control of the device/system integrating the IC. This puts at risk:

  • Brand & Revenue for the chip maker
  • Data confidentiality for the chip marker and its customers
  • Security and safety of people, industry and governments

 

OUR SOLUTION:

  • We can compare the genuine GDSII with the one that has been recovered from samples leaving the factory
    • If a difference is detected, a deeper investigation can confirm the presence of a backdoor

 

YOUR BENEFITS:

  • Control & Increase of trust at the supply chain level
