4. Active fault attack (on simple circuits, if feasible also on AES)

Security is a major concern for a variety of domains like embedded and cyber-physical systems in which threats in hardware and software components may pose catastrophic consequences. Software security has been studied extensively, since the majority of security attacks were typically at the software level. However, currently hardware becomes the Achilles heel for on-chip system security as recent events show. There is evidence of hardware security breaches and hence, there is a growing emphasize in hardware security from academic, industry, and government sectors. In this regard, physical attacks, side-channel analysis and fault-injection attacks for security-enabled application domains is becoming a real-world challenge.
