Abstract
Systran Federal Corp. (SFC) proposes to develop a low-profile tamper detection sensor for the purpose of protecting sensitive hardware and data from adversaries and reverse engineers by alerting a system when it has been removed from its intended environment and brought to a laboratory for reverse engineering. We will make use of emerging radio frequency identification (RFID) technology act as versatile, low-cost, low-power proximity sensors that can be featured in a number of different sensor architectures. From an Anti-Tamper (AT) design perspective, this solution is excellent in that it is simple, compact and low-profile, is difficult to detect and to reverse engineer once detected, offers flexibility to be incorporated into many anti-tamper designs, should be stable under a wide range of environmental conditions, and is low-cost and low-power. These attributes make these proximity sensors difficult to detect, simple to monitor, and easy to integrate into a new or legacy system. This technology should also be easy to maintain over the life of the operational system and have a long shelf life.
