Abstract:

Tamper-resistant systems play a key role in preventing and/or delaying the exploitation of critical technologies in U.S. weapons systems. The main focus of this effort is to identify methods for responding to tamper events and to develop innovative response techniques to protect CPI from exploitation, reverse engineering, and compromise. This proposal's solution is applicable to a wide range of architectures and both real-time and non-real-time platforms. To reduce possible cost increases, this system is designed to require as little additional effort from the application developers as possible. As part of this effort, a framework will be developed to identify CPI and ensure adequate temporal separation between a tamper event and the associated defensive tamper response. The penalty-and-response capability will include support for processing binary applications offline as well as dynamically at run time. To facilitate integration with deployed systems, a tamper response packaging tool will allow the application developer to identify CPI within the binary, and then to tailor the specific responses that will occur during an attack / tamper. At the completion of this effort, the technologies described in this proposal will be demonstrated in a relevant test laboratory environment, achieving a Technical Readiness Level (TRL) of 7.
