IC-Security Verification of Fault-Injection Side-Channel Attack in Semiconductors
Semiconductor security has become a significant concern in chip design, as more security-critical applications have arisen. Examples include the protection of safety critical (e.g. automotive) devices from malicious control takeover, revealing secrets defense related devices, accessing un-encrypted keys and other assets in smart-card chips, mining private data, chip-counterfeiting and even hacking into election machines. According to a recent study by Siemens EDA, and Wilson Research Group, 54% of ASIC/IC projects are implementing hardware security features that require verification.
