Smart Heat Control Technique Revealed by KIT researchers to Prevent Hacking
On February 28, 2018, the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology reported its invention of self-monitoring system that keeps a check to defend hacking attacks.
‘Industry 4.0’ would not be feasible if new possibilities of automation and industrial production that are the result of technological progress in sectors such as higher speeds, reduced costs, and smaller sizes would not have been found out.
Portable electronics and their decreasing sizes also called as miniaturization has noticeably advanced in the recent past. As the few electrons are also sufficient for the software execution, the development in this field was not difficult. Although the development is fast paced, it has its demerits. Processors with less than 10nm for industrial production are highly sensitive. By specific overloading through incorrect control of commands, hackers might start an artificial aging process that would destroy the processor within a few hours. To prevent such attacks on industrial facilities in the near future, the researchers are working on the self-monitoring system.
The new advance is founded on recognizing thermal patterns during routine operation of processors. “Every chip produces a specific thermal fingerprint,” explains Professor Jörg Henkel, who heads the team at the Chair for Embedded Systems (CES).
According to researchers the smart heat control technique will be applied in industrial facilities first. Since mostly static control routines are executed, deviations prove easier to recognize than in smartphones. Another reason is industrial facilities are more prone to dynamic threats. “As soon as the hackers will know that we monitor temperature, they will adapt,” computer scientist Hussam Amrouch, who works in the team of Jörg Henkel, explains. “They will write smaller or slower programs, whose heating profiles will be more difficult to identify.” Right from the start, the neural networks will therefore be trained to identify even modified threats.
The cyber security market is under constant development as it is the most important aspect for success of any organization. The threats, scope, and opportunities are well mentioned in Cyber Security Market report published by Coherent market Insights.
