cybersecurityBoeing 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.
