Trusted and secure microelectronics – small components in computer chips – are a critical defense need. However, the continued globalization of the microelectronics supply chain has created considerable risk.
KBR collaborates with government agencies, academic researchers, and commercial businesses to tackle the toughest problems across all areas of hardware security. From vulnerabilities like counterfeit devices to intellectual property theft, reducing these potential microelectronic weaknesses requires drastic changes to hardware design, assessment, validation, and verification.
“KBR experts establish and test best practices for microelectronics development to ensure security throughout the global supply chain.”
KBR experts establish and test best practices for microelectronics development to ensure security throughout the global supply chain. This includes the fabrication of integrated circuits in untrusted foundries without compromising intellectual property; the detection and prevention of counterfeits and hardware trojans; as well as the mitigation of side-channel leakage of sensitive information.
Through test and evaluation, we help customers with the design and verification of state-of-the-art digital, analog, mixed-signal, and radio frequency circuits to assess and quantify the security provided by novel secure design techniques.
