Abstract
Tamper resistant systems play a key role in preventing and/or delaying the exploitation of critical technologies in U.S. weapons systems. Pikewerks has identified a number of additional tamper response mechanisms that would significantly enhance the effectiveness of tamper resistant systems. This includes delayed system failures and migrating Critical Program Information (CPI) to out-of-band COTS hardware, making the tamper response system extremely difficult for an attacker to identify and understand.
