Researchers at New York University Abu Dhabi’s Design for Excellence lab have developed new innovations in computer chip technology that present landmark achievements in IT security.
Secured by a secret key so that only authorised users may utilise them, and immune to reverse-engineering, ‘logic-locked’ computer chips will provide future users with new guarantees of security for their devices.
As IT security rises to the forefront of public concern in the wake of recent cyber security attacks such as the WannaCry and Petya/NotPetya ransomware, academic solutions have been investigated in order to secure future systems from hackers.
