Now that semiconductors play a central and fast-expanding role in many aspects of everyday life, chip manufacturers face a growing collection of new pressures, including:
- Increasing design complexity
- More demanding security requirements from customers
- New security standards and regulatory requirements
- Increasingly sophisticated threat actors
These challenges are exacerbated by the fact that more non-traditional devices than ever are internet-connected. Connectivity brings many advantages to both product manufacturers and their customers. But it also introduces a substantial new set of security risks with real-world implications.
