Active Shield

GET THE SECURITY & PERFORMANCE YOU NEED

Active shielding and detection against invasive attacks

  • Active shield against circuit edition
  • Modification of the circuit to cut lines (verification, locks, etc.)
  • Done when there is no power, with a FIB
  • Active shield protection
  • FIB back-side circuit edition has been reported recently, but is complex and limited
  • So the attacker must break into the chip front-side
  • With Secure-IC Active Shield structure, it is difficult to
  • Remove the shield
  • Edit the circuit (in the low levels)
  • Redraw the shield

Key Features

  • Random cryptographically-generated patterns to detect integrity violations
  • Fully digital
  • Low area
  • Easy transferable to any Design Kit
  • No calibration after design
