Abstract: We propose to develop new methodologies to verify the integrity of physical systems, cyber-physical systems (CPS) and Internet of Things (IoT) devices via scanning electron microscopy (SEM), electrical, and software characterization techniques to prevent the unintended manipulation of hardware and software. Vulnerability analysis and novel watermarking/fingerprinting research utilizing scanning electron microscopy are central to the proposed work plan. This conceptual work will then be scaled for use in commercial settings.
