Grenoble INP-Phelma’s newest faculty member is an expert in hardware security. Brice Colombier joined the TIMA lab’s AMfoRS* group in September. His research focuses on attacks targeting integrated circuits and the associated countermeasures. Some attacks measure a circuit’s electrical consumption to extract data, for example. And the most sophisticated attacks use laser injection devices whose sole purpose is to hack into circuits.
Colombier will also be teaching a 20-hour lab class to third-year embedded systems and connected devices majors. Students in this emerging field, which is about where the smart card was 20 years ago in terms of security, will need to explore vulnerabilities and learn to protect them.
