UltraSoC and Agile Analog Collaborate to Detect Physical Cyber Attacks

UltraSoC and Agile Analog has recently announced a collaboration that aims to deliver the industry’s most comprehensive hardware-based cybersecurity infrastructure by combining UltraSoC’s embedded on-chip analytics with Agile Analog’s advanced on-chip analog monitoring IP.

UltraSoCThe combination will enable the detection and prevention of ‘analog interference’ cyber-attacks that circumvent traditional security measures by tampering with underlying systems such as power supply levels or clock signals.

UltraSoC’s recently-announced cybersecurity products monitor the functional behavior of digital circuitry, adding an extra layer of defense-in-depth to the security landscape, and detecting and mitigating cyber threats at hardware speed. Agile Analog offers a parallel range of “smart” monitors in the analog domain, such as voltage, temperature and timing sensors to detect side-channel attacks or anomalous behavior that could indicate a cyber-attack. The combination of system-level digital monitoring and analog capabilities will enable a holistic approach to hardware-based cybersecurity.

These types of side-channel attacks, such as voltage and clock glitching, brownouts and temperature variations, can be used to gain access to a chip’s internal circuitry, which makes UltraSoC’s hardware based security essential in monitoring and defending against these attacks where hackers may exploit side-channel vulnerabilities to launch a brute force attack.
