Boeing has licensed the differential power analysis countermeasures offering of Rambus Inc. in an effort to protect technologies on Boeing’s aircraft and defense-related products from security threats.
Rambus’ cryptography research division and Boeing have inked the license agreement to install the DPA countermeasures onto Boeing’s products to combat reverse engineering and exploitation attacks, Rambus said Wednesday.
“The threat of DPA attacks is on the rise, and companies like Boeing need the utmost security solutions to safeguard its customers’ high-value data,” said Martin Scott, general manager of the Rambus security division.
Rambus’ DPA countermeasures work to protect devices and other hardware from the unauthorized extraction of cryptographic keys and private data via side channels.
Rambus said DPA attacks have expanded from the smart card market to other markets segments such as aerospace and defense.
