Riscure’s state-of-the-art Side Channel Analysis and Fault Injection software, Inspector, is continuously updated to reflect the new developments in the security industry. Recently, we released the Inspector 2022.1 version. We want to introduce the important updates in this latest version.
The latest Inspector version enabled integration with the Keysight Infiniium MXR058A oscilloscope. You can now configure an Inspector acquisition module to use the Keysight scope. This enables users to use the device out of the box with Inspector. An attentive focus fell on the user experience improvements, including drag and drop capabilities, trace set navigation, and double cursor analysis. These improvements are part of our continuous efforts to make Inspector increasingly more intuitive and easy to use. Inspector 2022.1 also includes improved usability for TVLA modules, enabling you to dive deeper into the assessment of side-channel leakage. Discover more about the latest updates in the video below:
Summary of previous updates from 2020 and 2021
Among the modifications in the Inspector’s 2020.2 version, the EM Probe Station started to support homing, which makes it easier to return to a reference position. During homing, the station will move its arms to a starting position that it will set as the (0, 0, 0) coordinate. Afterward, axis motion extremities will be limited by Inspector to prevent axis arm dislocation. Furthermore, extra support for second order univariate TVLA testing to the T-test module and PicoScope 6000E series devices were added to the Inspector solution. Furthermore, all XYZ modules now save both the absolute and the relative coordinates in the trace data. This allows for both simple user interaction and less error-prone device movement.
In 2021, the default Inspector trace set storage was advanced, allowing saving arbitrary data to the header of a trace set and including meta-data about the data individual traces. The data relevant for the entire trace set is stored in trace set parameters, while trace-specific data is stored in trace parameters. Trace parameters remove the necessity for a user to define which range of the trace data contains certain information, such as input and output data. Moreover, a project view and a parameter view were added on the left side of the Inspector window. The project folder, which shows the available trace sets in the current project directory, provides quick insight into which trace sets have been derived from which other trace sets and allows for the easy opening and closing of trace sets. Meanwhile, the parameter view displays the newly added trace set parameter and trace parameter of a selected trace set.
