Chip Reverse Engineering

Cryptographic algorithms are often kept secret in the false belief that this provides security. To find and analyze these algorithms, we reverse-engineering the silicon chips that implement them.

With simple tools, we open the chips, take pictures, and analyze their internal structures. The talk provides all the details you need to start reversing chips yourself. Happy hacking!
