RISK ASSESSMENT

TAILORED ASSESSMENT OF YOUR IC LEVEL OF PROTECTION

THE PROBLEM:

Nowadays, several certification schemes exist, such as Common Criteria, EMVCo & FIPS, being a reference on ICs’ level of security. Though, by¬†excluding invasive attacks, these certification schemes leave chip makers & buyers with uncertainty on real IC protection against piracy and counterfeiting:

  • Chip buyers can find it hard to choose the best solution offering the optimum balance between security and price for their specific applications
  • Chip markers cannot guarantee that the ICs on the field can face real world attacks for the duration of their customers’ products’ lifetime on the market

 

OUR SOLUTION:

  • We conduct security evaluations from A to Z by following our methodology consisting in imaging and reversing the chip’s internal, then analyzing its weaknesses, and performing the attack if needed. We elaborate Risk Assessment reports including all produced results (images, netlist,…) and the description of the found weaknesses and attacks methods.

 

YOUR BENEFITS:

  • Chip buyers have technical valuable information that help them make a sound choice on the best security at the right price
  • Chip makers
    • Have a “red team” view on their design
    • Can more easily fight piracy when appropriate
    • Can provide new concrete technical¬†selling points on security to their customers
