In August 2016 the School of Computing’s Dr. Todd Andel and Dr. Todd McDonald received a Major Research Instrumentation (MRI) grant from the National Science Foundation (award CNS-1624944) for $393K. This grant will allow for the acquisition of a side-channel measurement and analysis system used for high fidelity vulnerability testing of embedded systems at the chip implementation level. Side-channels are unintended information paths that occur as a side effect due to physical implementation properties of electrical devices. Unintended side-channels introduce significant cyber security risks to computing systems and critical infrastructure. This system will provide USA a unique capability within the Gulf Coast region to engage in cyber security research of side-channel vulnerabilities, countermeasure development and analysis, and fault injection testing for security and reliability of critical infrastructure devices.
