Protecting FPGAs from power analysis

MIPS customers have the option of implementing a feature known as iFlowtrace, that uses a double data rate (DDR) clock and a four-bit parallel interface to extract data from the FIFO. When this is coupled with the ability to enable or disable the trace using on chip counters and registers, it can aid a user in ensuring that a code section of interest can be captured.

The product may be intuitive and engineers may be smart and able to figure out much of the product, but they will still need documentation. If it is difficult to document a product or a feature, there probably is a problem with it, and it needs to be improved. Getting input and feedback on the documentation from customers, R&D, support, marketing, and QA helps create accurate documents that are useful for the customer.

Notice that good three-factor security of the user (what you have – badge, who you are – biometric, what you know – password) is not enough to combat this sort of spoofing threat. A properly authenticated user could still log onto a network via compromised device (e.g. with a key-logger installed) and security could be breached. The device itself (not just the software on the disk) needs to be part of the secure path of data to and from the network. This is best done with a hardware solution such specified by TCG (Trusted Computer Group).
