New York University Abu Dhabi Researchers Develop ‘Unhackable’ Computer Chip

Chip is designed to prevent physical tampering of devices but could be extended to defend against online hackers

Researchers at New York University Abu Dhabi said they have created an 'unhackable' chip to shore up the defences of computer hardware, in an age of increasing threats to individuals and companies across the globe.

This is the first working prototype of a chip that has security features or locks implemented as part of its hardware design, protecting it from hardware-level - rather than software - threats.
