Damn Vuln IoT SoC: A Modular Platform To Learn Hardware Bug ExploitationAdam Henault, Philippe Tanguy

Date : 06 June 2024 à 09:15 — 15 min.

Attention to securing hardware designs is intensifying due to the ubiquity of computing and communication elements in our daily lives. The continuing unveiling of previously unknown vulnerabilities, exemplified by vulnerabilities such as Spectre and Meltdown, further underlines the growing importance of enhanced security measures. Exploiting such hardware bugs presents significant security challenges, as rectifying them often necessitates modifications to the affected systems' hardware. Therefore, it becomes crucial to comprehend the implications of these vulnerabilities and how to detect them. Addressing this concern, the Damn Vuln IoT SoC tool provides a solution, a modular platform facilitating the seamless integration of hardware description errors into a System on Chip for FPGA. It serves as a valuable resource for understanding and navigating the identification and exploitation of such vulnerabilities.
