This project is in collaboration with the company Securosys SA. Securosys develops secure computing platforms to protect digital objects against copying, manipulation and theft. The digital object can e.g. be encrypted or signed. These computing platforms use, amongst others, specially hardened hardware for tamper protection.
However, not all systems allow the integration of dedicated hardware components. The goal of this project is to study which hardware components can be realized as software, how this changes the relevant attack vectors and which (additional) measures can be implemented for protection.
