Anti-Reverse Engineering (RE) Techniques
Billions of dollars have been invested by the United States to acquire the most technologically advanced military hardware in history, and thereby provide battlefield advantages to military personnel. Protection of our sophisticated weapons systems and their components is critical for the continued maintenance of our technological advantages. Detecting and counteracting the newest methods of reverse engineering is vital to the protection of U.S. technology from compromise. Implementing software countermeasures alone is insufficient, especially when protecting and authenticating multiple components at the system level. Sensors covertly applied to individual components provide a solution. This project is to develop a loaded nanoparticle dielectric sensor to detect, respond to, and provide a unique signature of reverse engineering attempts through capacitive and fluorescent monitoring. Phase I of this project includes the design and demonstration of a nanoengineered sensor to detect interrogation attempts though changes in capacitance and fluorescence, generate local voltages, and provide a unique, covert, and physically unclonable signature. Phase II includes the investigation of the sensor"s ability to classify attacks and the optimization of system performance.
