Most companies developing semiconductors – or products that incorporate them – have existing hardware security practices in place. But the security requirements that these activities are based on often have two key limitations:
- They focus disproportionately on known risks and fail to account for the unexpected.
- They aren’t easily verifiable as the product development lifecycle advances.
As a result, product development can be derailed and delayed at any stage. Or worse, catastrophic hardware vulnerabilities can find their way into shipped products.
