NYU Abu Dhabi Develops ‘Unhackable’ Computer Chip

‘Logic-locked’ security is implemented at the hardware level rather than software or system levels, researchers say

Dubai; Researchers at New York University Abu Dhabi’s (NYUAD) Design for Excellence (Dfx) lab have developed a new ‘logic-locked’ security chip to protect devices from the surge in cyberattacks.

Secured by a secret key, it permits only authorised users can utilise the device and it is also immune to reverse-engineering.

Ozgur Sinanoglu, NYUAD associate dean of Engineering for Academic Affairs, associate professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering, and head of the Dfx, said in a statement on Sunday that security features, traditionally, are implemented at a software or system level.
