Amida's solution identifies behavioral signatures of hardware Trojans through emulation of pristine systems in a sandbox environment, deliberate infection of those systems with a Trojan, and the study and classification of anomalous system behavior.
"We've already shown that it is possible to detect anomalous behavior from Trojans, which mathematically is far more difficult than finding a needle in a haystack" said Alfred Crouch, Amida's Director of Hardware Engineering. "Now we are working to show how it is possible to countermeasure or harden military hardware against attacks."
"The Trojan emulation and exploration environment can be used to test weaknesses in any critical system," said Jim Hogan, a member of Amida's board of directors. "The implications are broad, not only for Naval platforms, but also for medical devices, autonomous vehicles, industrial control systems, computer processors, and conceivably any device that is vulnerable to attack."
