AbstractLIT proposes developing a processor socket that detects system configuration attributes and protects the system from interposers, probing, and other dynamic reverse engineering techniques. The LIT AT Processor Socket (ATPS) would utilize circuitry between the microprocessor socket connector and the motherboard (or Circuit Card Assembly, CCA) to ensure that the system is secure. The circuitry will be designed into a unit that is incorporated into the socket or incorporated into the Circuit Card Assembly (or motherboard). The ATPS circuitry will utilize LIT Phantom Sensor technology to verify that the motherboard/CCA system is in the appropriate configuration before allowing processing. LIT will work with Pikewerks Corporation to provide a tightly coupled hardware/software solution. LIT"s Phantom Sensor technology is a revolutionary application of a basic principle. Phantom Sensors allow a system to measure its own complex impedance to determine if it has been, or is being, modified. LIT proposes developing the capabilities of LIT Phantom Sensor technology for characterizing the socket and the interface between the CCA and processor in order to determine if the system has been tampered with or altered.
