Supply Chain Security And Counterfeit Detection Using Universal Chip Telemetry (UCT)


The recent shortage of chip supply and long lead times prompted system makers to turn to second tier suppliers and distributors for fulfilling their semiconductor needs. This in turn has put the spotlight on the growing concern of fraudulent or counterfeited Integrated Circuits (ICs). Proteus deep data analytics based on Universal Chip Telemetry (UCT) provides a new approach to supply chain ... » read more

Securing Heterogeneous Integration at the Chiplet, Interposer, and System-In-Package Levels (FICS-University of Florida)


A new research paper titled "ToSHI - Towards Secure Heterogeneous Integration: Security Risks, Threat Assessment, and Assurance" was published by researchers at the Florida Institute for Cybersecurity (FICS) Research, University of Florida. Abstract "The semiconductor industry is entering a new age in which device scaling and cost reduction will no longer follow the decades-long pattern. Pa... » read more

Complex Chips Make Security More Difficult


Semiconductor supply chain management is becoming more complex with many more moving parts as chips become increasingly disaggregated, making it difficult to ensure where parts originated and whether they have been compromised before they are added into advanced chips or packages. In the past, supply chain concerns largely focused primarily on counterfeit parts or gray-market substitutions u... » read more

Combating Counterfeit Semiconductors in the Automotive Supply Chain


The counterfeit market for semiconductors is real, sizable and growing. Industry analysts peg the current market for fake semiconductors at $75B. Counterfeit chips pose great risk to driver comfort and safety, to say nothing of the severe negative consequences they present to automaker revenues and brand. The good news is there are immediate and cost-effective measures available to secu... » read more

Creating A Roadmap For Hardware Security


The U.S. Department of Defense and private industry consortiums are developing comprehensive and cohesive cybersecurity plans that will serve as blueprints for military, industrial and commercial systems. What is particularly noteworthy in all of these efforts is the focus on semiconductors. While software can be patched, vulnerabilities such as Spectre, Meltdown and Foreshadow need to be de... » read more
