How to combat hardware Trojans by detecting microchip manipulations
Not only do security vulnerabilities lurk within software, but they can also be embedded directly into hardware, leaving technical applications open to widespread attack. For their project, the researchers took thousands of microscopic images of microchips. Pictured here is such a chip in a golden chip package. The chip area that was inspected only measures about two square millimeters. Researchers from Ruhr University Bochum, Germany, and the Max Planck Institute for Security and Privacy (MPI-SP) … More
