Find security issues during the design of a chip. Find Leakage and the root-cause automatically.
Automating security evaluation
Inspector Pre-silicon finds leakage that an attacker can exploit and detects the parts of the design that contribute to the detected leakage.
Inspector Pre-Silicon points to gates on a physical level and translates that to the RTL design so that the chip design can be changed to prevent security vulnerabilities.
How Riscure Inspector Pre-Silicon works
With the customer’s EDA toolchain, an RTL design, Netlist or routed netlist is simulated. With this, Inspector Pre-Silicon collects around 5000 traces. Based on these traces, Inspector makes an analysis to detect leakage. Riscure’s product can identify the window in which the leakage occurs, detect which signals and gates are active in that window, and then rank which of them are contributing the most to the leakage we measure.
Benefits of using Inspector Pre-Silicon
- Enable non-security-expert designers to root cause security issues.
- Find and identify issues when it’s still quick to fix them.
- Reduce the need for time-consuming and expensive silicon testing.
- Reduce the risk of post-silicon certification failure and insecure products.
What our customers say
“With post-silicon security analysis, we can fix the next chip. With pre-silicon security analysis, we can fix the current chip.”
“The combination of doing it fast and showing where the problem is – is unique on the market.”
