Secure components

Published on 2 March 2017



The integrated circuits found in smartphones, mobile embedded systems, smart cards, and other connected objects are all prime targets for cyber-attacks.

CEA Tech institute Leti has built up a unique set of resources to simulate physical attacks (fault injection) on these kinds of systems. Leti researchers have also developed characterization tests to evaluate these targets’ vulnerability, detect any weaknesses, and come up with innovative solutions to close breaches, thereby mitigating attacks.

Leti helps its industrial partners make their products more secure and certifies products before release. In France, certification involves official evaluations carried out according to Common Criteria. Leti is one of two centers in France to conduct these official evaluations, right on the CEA Tech campus.
