TRAITOR: A Low-Cost Evaluation Platform for Multifault Injection


Fault injection is a well-known method to physically attack embedded systems, microcontrollers in particular. It aims to find and exploit vulnerabilities in the hardware to induce malfunction in the software and eventually bypass software security or retrieve sensitive information. We propose a low-cost platform called TRAITOR inducing faults with clock glitches with the capacity to inject numerous and precise bursts of faults. From an evaluation point of view, this platform allows easier and cheaper investigations over complex attacks than costly EMI benches or laser probes.
