Abstract:

To meet the challenge of preventing or delaying the reverse engineering or compromise of U.S. developed technologies embedded in U.S. Army weapon systems, Athena proposes a comprehensive framework for the design of custom single-chip secure processors. This framework will enable designers to rapidly and cost-effectively produce secure, custom system-on-a-chip processors, as well as design collateral necessary for security certification of each custom secure processing solution. This will effectively remove the barriers to implementing secure processing for the majority of defense electronics applications. In Phase I, Athena will implement the described design framework and produce a hardware prototype of a secure processor using the framework.
