IC Chip Extraction Introduction

ic-extraction

When it comes to the extract the program from IC Chip,  IC Attacker normally can’t much information about security protection from datasheets on secure products. Normally they only list all the methods of IC clone against which the protection was designed and do not discuss any implementation details. The critical question is always whether an opponent can obtain unsupervised access to the device. If the answer is no, then relatively simple measures may suffice. For example, the VISA security module is vulnerable to people with occasional access: a service engineer could easily disable the tamper protection circuitry on one of his visits, and extract key material from IC on the next. But this is not considered to be a problem by banks, who typically keep security modules under observation in a computer room, and closely supervise service visits.
