Building an FPGA-based Glitcher to Defeat Hardware - Silvio Cesare

Level: Introduction

Glitching is a fault injection attack against physical hardware that causes misbehaviour in the system being attacked. This misbehaviour might include microcontroller instructions being skipped or altered allowing conditional security checks to pass. To selectively choose instructions to glitch, the fault injection must be precise to the clock cycle level. In this talk, I'll discuss I how built a hardware glitcher using an FPGA that sits man-in-the-middle of an external clock signal delivered to a device. At precisely the correct clock cycle the clock signal is glitched. The FPGA is programmed in Verilog and uses all the things you would expect in digital design - flip-flops, counters, event sequencers, decoders, multiplexors, and state machines.

Bio

Dr Silvio Cesare is hax0r by night and a next-gen AV (whatever that means) developer by day. Not content with a PhD in computing and commercialising his research at work, Silvio has gone back to Uni as a Masters student of Engineering in Digital Systems and Telecommunications. FPGA development and Verilog was the 1st subject he did at the ANU. Silvio lives in Canberra and hosts the local Ruxmon.
