A vulnerability in Silicon is a problem you can't patch

Whether you build systems-on-chips, design hardware IP, write embedded software, or integrate entire systems, a vulnerability in silicon has the potential to be a permanently-open door for attackers.  Issues that go missed at design time will be fabricated into the underlying silicon of the system, far beyond the reach of just-in-time software patches.

Normal design test and verification techniques check for functionality but won't catch these lurking vulnerabilities.  There is a large and growing gap between the assumptions made by software security techniques and the realities of the underlying silicon in mobile, embedded, and other critical systems. silicon is becoming more complex, more integrated, and more application specific every day.
