Background

Anti-tamper technologies provide the means to protect an electronic device against compromise of sensitive and proprietary data/technology through physical attacks, as well as techniques to mitigate the damages caused by such attacks from an adversary.

Objectives

This activity aims to arrange a Research Workshop (RWS) to gather researches in the area of tamper protection technologies to exchange ideas and explore solutions related to emerging technologies and corresponding security standards to protect sensitive military systems from being compromised.

Topics

The scope of the RWS and topics to be covered can be summarized as follows: • Explore new/extend existing security design and test standards to cover: o new solutions/approaches (e.g. PUF based enclosures, but not limited to) o further advances of existing solutions o analysis of several current test approaches to explore their: ? ability to cover PUF based anti-tamper technologies ? adaptability to current needs of new emerging products ? absolute valuation levels, in order to authorise its use in a security context ? relative valuation, allowing to compare different solutions ? validity of a valuation, taking into account that attack levels are continuously rising and new attacks can appear • Explore suitable concepts for which conformance to the desired criteria appears feasible, and to encourage collaboration within NATO towards hardware demonstrators
