CrossBar announced that its RRAM memory technology is inherently resistant to physical hacking targeting sensitive information and data stored in memory. This could lead to new applications where resistance to reverse engineering and physical attacks are essential requirements of the system.
Cross bar says that its filamentary-based ReRAM has been demonstrated to provide unique levels of security, including strong resistance to attempts to read the memory through invasive physical hacking. Cross further says that MicroNet Solutions (MSI) performed extensive delayering and inspection of CrossBar's ReRAM memory silicon through imaging techniques in an attempt to determine its stored content. After significant evaluation using sophisticated techniques such as measuring electron beam induced current and passive voltage contrast imaging, MSI was unsuccessful in determining the contents of the memory array.
