Security and testing

Kurt Rosenfeld, Ramesh Karri

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Test interfaces are present in nearly all digital hardware. In many cases, the security of the system depends on the security of the test interfaces. Systems have been hacked in the field using test interfaces as an avenue for attack. Researchers in industry and academia have developed defenses over the past 20 years. A diligent designer can significantly reduce the chance of system exploitation by understanding known threats and applying known defenses.
