Hardware attacks are becoming more and more sophisticated. There are several reasons this could be happening:
- Security increasingly supported in hardware – Mistakes can introduce severe vulnerabilities
- Complex interaction between security hardware and firmware/software – Thorough system-level verification is a challenge
- Architectural vulnerabilities allow remote exploit – Dramatic increase of attack surface and scale
In this video for Help Net Security, Jason Oberg, CTO at Tortuga Logic, talks about the growing hardware security threats.
