Goals Of A Hardware Attack

  • Steal – an attacker wants to take possession of sensitive information or resources.
  • Corrupting – an attacker modifies data or functionality for their advantage Inhibiting – an attacker prevents proper access or use of a service or data.

The Attack Domain

  • Logical Domain – Attacks exploiting vulnerabilities in software layers running on top of hardware.
  • Physical Domain – Attacks directly performed on the hardware device itself.

The Attack Types

  • Microprobing Attacks
  • Reverse Engineering
  • Data Remanence Attacks
  • Side-Channel Attacks
  • Fault Attacks
  • Test-Infrastructure-Based Attacks

The Attack Methods

Invasive Attacks

  • Physical intrusions involving actions like desoldering or disconnection of internal components.

Non-Invasive Attacks

  • Passive – Analyzing and measuring physical entities of the attacked hardware
  • Active – Forcing the hardware into abnormal states to achieve the attacker’s goal
