Secure Coding Fundamentals for Embedded Systems

Are you a seasoned C/C++programmer who wants to take their skills to the next level? Then this learning program is for you! Learn how to eliminate logical errors, harden critical code areas against fault attacks, and protect crypto algorithms against Side Channel attacks. This is a unique program with a clear objective: learn to identify vulnerabilities, implement countermeasures and evaluate their cost (e.g., performance penalty).

Core capabilities

  • Challenge assumptions: making assumptions is a common but dangerous programming practice, e.g. it can lead to incorrectly validated input. You will learn how software programs are executed in the memory, what happens when a device operates out of bounds and how instantaneous power consumption can be used to extract secret information.
  • Find vulnerabilities: because a device or application can be compromised when even a single vulnerability is identified by an attacker, the goal of a developer is to remove all vulnerabilities. You will learn how to eliminate the most common logical errors in software, add extra defense to the critical areas of code, and secure the crypto engines.
  • Choose and implement defenses: while there are many possible defense mechanisms, each comes at a cost: execution time, required memory, access to hardware components such as RNGs. You will learn how to analyze the cost and effect tradeoff, and thus be able to make informed strategic decisions.
