Cyber-physical Security

test

The platform uses various experimentation benches for the analysis of security vulnerabilities in integrated circuits and embedded systems. It is co-funded by the FEDER-FSE 2014-2020 Operations Program, Languedoc-Roussillon Region (219 k€). This equipment is used for both research and training purposes, in partnership with the French CNFM (http://web-pcm.cnfm.fr/secnum/).

Equipment

The Cyber-physical Security platform includes several experimentation benches, as well as related analysis software:

  •  Side channel analysis benches and radio protocols
    • Electromagnetic Radiation
    • Current
  • Electromagnetic Harmonic Injection bench (Figure 1).
  • Electromagnetic Pulse Injection bench (Figure 2).
  • Thermal Analysis bench (Figure 3).
  • Analysis software (DPA, CPA, MIA, HCA, etc.) and Differential Fault Analysis (DFA).

Figure 1: Electromagnetic Harmonic Injection Bench

This platform is dedicated to the analysis of the resistance of components and integrated systems to fault attacks injected via the electromagnetic channel. It produces strong electric harmonics between 1Hz and 1GHz in a controlled manner. Moreover, the amplitude and/or phase of these fields can be modulated. The coupling of these continuous waves with components allows researchers to alter and study the behavior of components and integrated systems, and more specifically of the analog blocks (random number generators, PLL, embedded signal generators, etc.).

Figure 2: Electromagnetic Pulse Injection Bench

This platform is dedicated to the analysis of the resistance of components and integrated systems to fault attacks injected via the electromagnetic channel. On command and with great precision, it produces EM pulses of high amplitude and short duration (5ns to 100ns). These pulses generate parasitic currents within the components and integrated systems which can be used to bypass security mechanisms or reveal secrets.

Figure 3: Thermal Analysis Bench

Based on a fast and high-detection InAs sensor, this platform is dedicated to the thermal characterization of components and integrated systems. Applications include searching for Trojans, and fighting against the counterfeiting and reverse engineering of components.
