A Journey into Silicon Security Speaker: Olivier Thomas
That talk is a deep dive into Integrated Circuits (ICs) and their security. It is constructed to explain what makes hardware attacks possible at the silicon level. Non-, Semi- and fully Invasive attacks will be explained from their physical / logical origins based on real world examples. The security of Integrated Circuits should rely on design, rather than on obfuscation alone. The reason for this is that reverse-engineering is always part of the workflow used by attackers. This has major implications for the ways in which chips should be designed. This talk is also to raise awareness of silicon attacks and will detail tools and techniques necessary to perform reverse-engineering and analysis of ICs. While chip Reverse-Engineering can be used to recover the functionality of the IC from images of the device, a special focus will be put on the combination of reverse-engineering and invasive attacks to show how embedded firmware and other data such as cryptographic keys can be dumped.
Olivier is also attending
