Cybersecurity Threat Detection and Mitigation

Cybersecurity Threat Detection and Mitigation
by Daniel Payne on 05-16-2022 at 10:00 am

Embedded Analytics min

Every week in the technology trade press I am reading about cybersecurity attacks against web sites, apps, IoT devices, vehicles and even ICs. At the recent IP SoC Silicon Valley 2022 event in April I watched a cybersecurity  presentation from Robert Rand, Solution Architect for Tessent Embedded Analytics at Siemens EDA. Common… Read More

Synopsys Tutorial on Dependable System Design

Synopsys Tutorial on Dependable System Design
by Bernard Murphy on 04-06-2022 at 6:00 am

Dependability

Synopsys hosted a tutorial on the last day of DVCon USA 2022 on design/system dependability. Which here they interpret as security, functional safety, and reliability analysis. The tutorial included talks from DARPA, AMD, Arm Research and Synopsys. DARPA and AMD talked about general directions and needs, Arm talked about their… Read More

Untitled design

Moving deep learning from the cloud to the edge is the holy grail when it comes to deploying highly accurate, low-power applications. Market demand for edge AI continues to grow globally as new hardware and software solutions are now more readily available, enabling any sized company to easily implement deep learning solutions… Read More


Why It’s Critical to Design in Security Early to Protect Automotive Systems from Hackers

Why It’s Critical to Design in Security Early to Protect Automotive Systems from Hackers

Figure 2 Automotive Security Diagram

Remember when a pair of ethical hackers remotely took over a Jeep Cherokee as it was being driven on a highway near downtown St. Louis back in 2015? The back story is, those “hackers,” security researchers Charlie Miller and Chris Valasek, approached vehicle manufacturers several years before their high-profile feat, warning… Read More

Intrinsic ID Webinar Blog

In the first half of 2021, the number of attacks on IoT devices more than doubled to 1.5 billion attacks in just six months. These attacks target some typical weaknesses, such as the use of weak passwords, lack of regular patches and updates, insecure interfaces, and insufficient data protection. However, researchers from Bishop… Read More

Conquering the Impossible with Aspiration and Attitude

Cornami is an interesting company. Their leader is also an interesting person. I’ve interviewed Wally Rhines many times on various topics. All of them have been big hits. Cornami is focused on enabling fully homomorphic encryption (FHE) in a commercially viable and widespread manner. Many say this isn’t possible, but Wally and… Read More


Enlisting Entropy to Generate Secure SoC Root Keys

Enlisting Entropy to Generate Secure SoC Root Keys
by Tom Simon on 12-06-2021 at 6:00 am

NVM attacks

Most methods of securing SOCs involve storing a root key that provides the basis of all derived keys and encryption of communication. The weakness with these methods is that even if the root key is stored in secure non-volatile memory, there are often methods to read the key. Once a key has been divulged the device can be cloned and … Read More


Using PUFs for Random Number Generation

Using PUFs for Random Number Generation
by Kalar Rajendiran on 10-19-2021 at 6:00 am

3 API Functions

In our daily lives, few of us if any, would want randomness to play any role. We look for predictability in order to plan our lives. But reality is that random numbers have been playing a role in our lives for a long time. The more conspicuous use cases of random numbers are with key fobs, and nowadays mobile phones. And then there are a … Read More


Side Channel Analysis at RTL. Innovation in Verification

Side Channel Analysis at RTL. Innovation in Verification
by Bernard Murphy on 08-26-2021 at 6:00 am

Innovation New

Roots of trust can’t prevent attacks through side-channels which monitor total power consumption or execution timing. Correcting weakness to such attacks requires pre-silicon vulnerability analysis. Paul Cunningham (GM, Verification at Cadence), Raúl Camposano (Silicon Catalyst, entrepreneur, former Synopsys CTO)… Read More
