The vast and complex global semiconductor supply chain presents significant risks to the microelectronic devices found within DOD components and systems. Counterfeit or maliciously altered devices could cause a fielded system to fail catastrophically during a critical time of system operation.
In recent years, hardware hacking has become much more prevalent, bringing with it a threat that is fundamentally more difficult to counter than software threats, which can often be patched in the field. This is a risk that must be countered through the development of advanced hardware-level security implementations.
Invariant has provided in-depth support to customers in the areas of counterfeit screening, malicious insertion risk mitigation, and hardware security.
