“It is a great honor to receive this award and recognition for my hardware security innovations to prevent electronics counterfeiting,” noted Dr. Tuyls. “With counterfeiting a growing global issue, I look forward to providing continued technology advances that enable companies with effective security solutions against cloning, tampering, reverse engineering, and theft-of-service.”
A New Approach: Hardware Intrinsic Security™ Counterfeiting is a growing issue that, among others, reduces market size and damages brand reputation. The security and authenticity of electronic devices is fundamental to electronics companies and their customers for the protection of their assets. Hardware security is crucial to preventing security breaches, and a new approach to secure key storage must be adopted. HIS technology provides a new level of hardware security utilizing the inherent uniqueness in each and every silicon chip. This approach allows a device to generate a secret key only when needed and power down with no key present. Because no key is stored, attackers have nothing to find.
