​Thomas Feller sheds some light on trust anchor architectures for trustworthy reconfigurable systems. He is presenting novel concepts enhancing the security capabilities of reconfigurable hardware. Almost invisible to the user, many computer systems are embedded into everyday artifacts, such as cars, ATMs, and pacemakers. The significant growth of this market segment within the recent years enforced a rethinking with respect to the security properties and the trustworthiness of these systems. The trustworthiness of a system in general equates to the integrity of its system components. Hardware-based trust anchors provide measures to compare the system configuration to reference measurements. Reconfigurable architectures represent a special case in this regard, as in addition to the software implementation, the underlying hardware architecture may be exchanged, even during runtime.

The relevance of the Internet has dramatically grown in the past decades. However, the enormous financial impact attracts many types of criminals. Setting up proper security mechanisms (e.g., Intrusion Detection Systems (IDS)) has therefore never been more important than today. To further compete with today's data transfer rates (10 to 100 Gbit/s), dedicated hardware accelerators have been proposed to offload compute intensive tasks from general purpose processors. As one key technology, reconfigurable hardware architectures, e.g., the Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA), are of particular interest to this end. This work addresses the use of such FPGAs in the context of interactive communication applications, which goes beyond the regular packet level operations often seen in this area. To support rapid prototyping, a novel FPGA platform (NetStage) has been designed and developed, which provides a communication core for Internet communication and a flexible connection bus for attaching custom applications modules. A hardware honeypot (the MalCoBox) has been set up as a proof-of-concept application. Furthermore, to address the ongoing issue of hardware programming complexity, the domain-specific Malacoda language for abstractly formulating honeypot packet communication dialogs is presented and discussed. An associated compiler translates Malacoda into high-performance hardware modules for NetStage. Together, NetStage and Malacoda address some of the productivity deficiencies often recognized as major hindrances for the more widespread use of reconfigurable computing in communications applications. Finally, the NetStage platform has been evaluated in a real production environment.

Security Basics for Computer Architects

Author: Ruby B. Lee
Publisher: Morgan & Claypool Publishers
ISBN: 9781627051569
Release Date: 2013-09-01
Genre: Computers

Design for security is an essential aspect of the design of future computers. However, security is not well understood by the computer architecture community. Many important security aspects have evolved over the last several decades in the cryptography, operating systems, and networking communities. This book attempts to introduce the computer architecture student, researcher, or practitioner to the basic concepts of security and threat-based design. Past work in different security communities can inform our thinking and provide a rich set of technologies for building architectural support for security into all future computers and embedded computing devices and appliances. I have tried to keep the book short, which means that many interesting topics and applications could not be included. What the book focuses on are the fundamental security concepts, across different security communities, that should be understood by any computer architect trying to design or evaluate security-aware computer architectures.

Cryptographic Algorithms on Reconfigurable Hardware

Author: Francisco Rodriguez-Henriquez
Publisher: Springer Science & Business Media

Release Date: 2007-04-03
Genre: Technology & Engineering

Software-based cryptography can be used for security applications where data traffic is not too large and low encryption rate is tolerable. But hardware methods are more suitable where speed and real-time encryption are needed. Until now, there has been no book explaining how cryptographic algorithms can be implemented on reconfigurable hardware devices. This book covers computational methods, computer arithmetic algorithms, and design improvement techniques needed to implement efficient cryptographic algorithms in FPGA reconfigurable hardware platforms. The author emphasizes the practical aspects of reconfigurable hardware design, explaining the basic mathematics involved, and giving a comprehensive description of state-of-the-art implementation techniques.

Security Trends for FPGAS

Author: Benoit Badrignans
Publisher: Springer Science & Business Media
ISBN: 940071338X
Release Date: 2011-06-20
Genre: Technology & Engineering

In Security Trends for FPGA's the authors present an analysis of current threats against embedded systems and especially FPGAs. They discuss about requirements according to the FIPS standard in order to build a secure system. This point is of paramount importance as it guarantees the level of security of a system. Also highlighted are current vulnerabilities of FPGAs at all the levels of the security pyramid. It is essential from a design point of view to be aware of all the levels in order to provide a comprehensive solution. The strength of a system is defined by its weakest point; there is no reason to enhance other protection means, if the weakest point remains untreated. Many severe attacks have considered this weakness in order not to face brute force attack complexity. Several solutions are proposed in Security Trends for FPGA's especially at the logical, architecture and system levels in order to provide a global solution.
