New book on the state of the art in microprocessor attacks

Leti research scientists and IRT Nanoelec PULSE program participants Olivier Savry, Thomas Hiscock, and Mustapha El Majihi recently published a book on hardware security.

The new book (published in French) delivers a comprehensive review of the vulnerabilities affecting the very hardware (processors, of course, but also memory, programs, and peripheral devices) upon which our electronic systems are built. It inventories the types of attacks that can target hardware and the consequences of these attacks. The book also provides complete information about the latest known attacks.

As readers explore processor architectures, they gain insights into tomorrow’s security requirements. This book will be of interest to developers, electronics engineers, and computer science and electronics students seeking a deeper understanding of hardware security.
