Graf Research Awarded SBIR: "Optimal Strategies for Cloud-Based Trust Assessment"

Graf Research has been awarded a Phase 1 SBIR to research and develop optimal strategies for cloud-based trust assessment. We anticipate creating not only a novel cloud architecture that can facilitate the use of many of the DARPA-sponsored custom microelectronics trust software tools but also a unique, cloud-hosted software product OpTrust-C which will devise optimal strategies for the proper implementation of defensive measures.

IEEE NAECON 2016: "System-Level Adversary Attack Surface Modeling for Microelectronics Trust"

Continuing our publication of the applications of Game Theory to various levels of trust assessment, we discuss system-level applications in our IEEE NAECON 2016 paper.  Come on out and see our presentation!

Towards System-Level Adversary Attack Surface Modeling for Microelectronics Trust
Jonathan Graf

Abstract—Models of trust for microelectronic systems are difficult to create due to the large variety of adversarial strategies available. Building on previous work, we present a new adversary model that considers the large heterogeneous attack surface that is realistically available on a diverse microelectronic system. We also present an expanded game theoretic model that permits reasoning about optimal adversarial and defensive strategies across this varied attack surface.
