Keysight Technologies, Inc., a leading technology company that helps enterprises, service providers and governments accelerate innovation to connect and secure the world, announced that Keysight's CX3300 Device Current Waveform Analyzer with anomalous waveform analytics (AWA) software was selected by Waseda University to conduct research on hardware Trojan detection technology.
While the use of the IoT (Internet of Things) is expanding, outsourcing of circuit design and manufacturing from in-house, as well as the use of IP progressed from other companies, is increasing. As a result, cybersecurity threats due to hardware trojans, which are circuits that behave maliciously in electronic devices, are on the rise.
Waseda University Faculty of Science and Engineering is investigating the characteristics of hardware Trojans and researching methods to avoid security risks. Keysight's CX3300A features wide dynamic range and bandwidth, low noise, unique voltage/current measurement sensitivity, and a long-time data logger function that can capture waveforms of up to 100 hours without time lag. In addition, the AWA function can detect differences in the waveforms of the device and classify them as waveform patterns. This allows quick characterization/verification, as well as debug/troubleshooting and optimization of IoT connected devices.
