Innovation Showcase Session: Hardware Security Solutions

  • Room: Innovation Showcase Theater, 2200 Aisle
Tuesday, February 21, 2017: 4:00 PM - 4:20 PM


Dr. Jason Oberg
Chief Executive Officer
Tortuga Logic


Tortuga Logic provides software platforms and services to uncover security vulnerabilities in modern integrated circuit designs. In today's security landscape, attackers are targeting the heart of every system, the integrated circuits themselves. This is evident by vulnerabilities found and exploited in several commercial processors, despite the efforts of large security review teams. In this talk, Dr. Oberg will discuss threats to integrated circuit security such as illegitimate access to keys, unauthorized communication between System-on-Chip (SoC) subsystems, and unintended data leakage due to on-chip debug. He will also discuss current best practices to identify these vulnerabilities, as well as how technology offered by Tortuga Logic can drastically speed up the security verification process and increase the coverage of security vulnerabilities identified and patched before the physical chip is ever fabricated.
