VE-VIDES: Design Methods and HW/SW Co-Verification for the Unambiguous Identifiability of Electronic Components

Printer-friendly version Send by email PDF version

Many modern applications such as highly automated driving or flexible production facilities are based on complex electronic systems. These electronic components are making our lives and work increasingly efficient and enjoyable. However, they also pose a potential danger if these systems are not developed with the clear goal of trustworthiness from the outset.

Against this background, the Federal Ministry of Education and Research has launched the funding guideline "Trustworthy Electronics (ZEUS)", within the framework of which the research project "Design methods and HW/SW co-verification for the unambiguous identifiability of electronic components" (VE-VIDES) has been working since March 2021. VE-VIDES aims to systematically identify all potential security vulnerabilities already in the design phase and to protect electronic systems from attacks with the help of automatically generated, reliable mechanisms. VE-VIDES focuses on securing the trustworthiness of the system hardware (HW) and takes into account the direct interfaces to trustworthy software/firmware components. Translated with (free version)
