Research Institution
Triton Systems proposes to develop advanced methodologies, for protection of Critical Program Information (CPI) of BMDS assets against exploitation by reverse engineering and tampering through the use of Side Channel Attacks (SCAs) on Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) devices. Specifically, a method to confuse and defeat SCAs that utilize timing information and electromagnetic leaks will be developed. The proposed methods will be applicable to both current and future hardware. Minimal weight will be added to the system with the proposed methods. During Phase I, Triton Systems developed the conceptual framework for the new methods for protection against SCAs. Further, Triton Systems performed analysis and bench level testing to demonstrate the methods. During Phase II, Triton Systems will further develop and refine the methods designed in Phase I, and evaluate their effectiveness utilizing prototypes. Triton will develop fabrication and integration techniques for this technology for both currently designed and future systems.
