September 15, 2018 #embedded security #event #reverse engineering #ctf

For the second year SCHUTZWERK was a sponsor of the hardwear.io conference in Den Haag. This year, we attended the conference with 3 employees focused on hardware and embedded security. The Training Session One of our hardware specialists, Heiko Ehret, learned how to reverse engineer a microchip in the training IC reverse engineering 101 from Tuesday to Wednesday. In this training the principles of gaining access to the DIE of a chip were presented and in the practical part for example photos, which were taken with a scanning electron microscope (SEM), were analyzed to extract the computational structure as well as reading out the contents of the memories.
