Intrinsic Use Control for Cybersecurity and Anti-Counterfeiting in Electronic Devices

LLNL’s Intrinsic Use Control (IUC) technology significantly enhances the security of electronic devices and components within the device.

Background

With the growth in mobile devices, the Internet of Things and new electronics connecting formerly-isolated systems to the Internet comes new and rapidly evolving cybersecurity risks. Security professionals now consider protecting their systems against not only bad actors from outside the trusted network but also against malicious or incautious insiders and supply chains with potentially counterfeit parts. Currently, many electronic technologies are secured using encryption. Verification that a device can be used is typically performed by authenticating the user using passwords, biometrics or similar solutions. However, user verification protections have proven compromises, and the device components may themselves be compromised. Current solutions usually increase the time and effort needed to develop and perform a compromise – essentially trusting that
