Abstract
LIT will develop Silicon Modification Sensor (SMS) circuitry that is capable of detecting FIB processing or unauthorized changes to Integrated Circuit (IC) silicon. The SMS circuits will produce key material to be used to decipher CPI data and software. The SMS system is intended to operate as a part of the LIT Product Authentication Sensor System (PASS). The detection of modification by the SMS produces an invalid key. In the complete AT solution, the SMS circuits provide an additional layer of protection in case all other security methods fail or are compromised. In Phase I, LIT will develop Silicon Modification Sensor circuits in FPGAs and test against simulated FIB attacks. In Phase II, LIT will test SMS against actual FIB processing.
