Protect against exploits on 11th Gen Intel Core Processors

  • Firmware is the new frontier for platform security. It is safe to say that if your firmware is compromised, then your platform is compromised. The firmware sets up and maintains the platform’s hardware security capabilities and hands off control to the operating system securely. The firmware is integral to the platform and some or all of it is stored in non-volatile storage (like flash) directly attached to the platform. This makes it difficult to find malware embedded in firmware, difficult to mitigate its effects, because most firmware is essential to the boot process, and difficult to remediate.
     

Achieving Higher Product Quality and Faster Time-to-Market Through Early-Stage Model-Based Fault-Injection Testing

  • In this paper, we show how and why very early fault-injection tests greatly improve the speed and quality of the development process of safety-critical embedded systems. After a brief introduction to fault-injection testing for safety-critical systems using standards from the automotive domain as a guideline, the benefits of early-stage tests are highlighted. The third section focusses on fault-injection testing on the model level, with the fourth section giving a use-case example for model-based fault-injection testing using Mindmotiv’s Arttest as the testing environment.

The Nuts & Bolts of Secure Erase

  • When we remove critical data from our embedded devices using standard means, the data doesn’t fully disappear. Specific actions need to be taken to ensure sensitive data is not just hanging around on the device, waiting to be plundered. One of the best ways to protect that data is by properly erasing it when it is no longer needed.

Ready for 5G Front-Haul Applications with DSFP Dual-Channel 112G Form Factor

  • Choosing the right form factor becomes easy with Yamaichi Electronics´ DSFP host connector, the worldwide first-to-market DSFP host connector. Due to its multi-fit feature, DSFP is mating compatible with SFP footprint and cages. But it offers 2 channels x 112 Gbps/s data rate instead of only 1 channel as in SFP.

Arttest in the Automotive SPICE Process Reference Model

  • ASPICE is an internationally accepted process model that defines best practices for software and embedded systems development for the automotive industry.
    The application of Automotive SPICE® is a prerequisite for becoming and remaining a supplier of the most European car  manufacturers. Because of the continuously evolving international interweaving of the supplier relations, the application of  the standard has been expanded to Asia and the USA.
    Logic Technology provides tools and services to support ASPICE for both MBSE and native C/C++ software development.
