PhD Topic: Since its discovery a few decades ago, hardware fault injection has been an increasing threat to digital systems. However, hardware and software security analyses are often conducted separately, which results in inaccuracies. A cross-layer approach considering both parts of a system could bridge this gap. The chosen approach consists in extracting software fault models from a processor microarchitecture using its RTL description and simulation; and then exploiting these models to conduct efficient security analyses using methods such as static code analysis.
