Leveraging the Analog Domain for Security (LADS)

The goal of the Leveraging the Analog Domain for Security (LADS) program is to develop new cybersecurity capabilities by exploring the intersection of the analog and digital domains. The high-level vision is that the combination of analog signal analysis (e.g., as used in side-channel attacks) and program analysis techniques will enable high-fidelity, high-accuracy introspection of embedded and mission-specific devices (EMSDs) by an external monitoring device, and that such introspection will enable the detection of a variety of adversaries. Although the primary focus is on EMSDs, the program is also interested in the application of such techniques in traditional information technology (IT) devices.
