Functional Components Description


The Platform Faustine is dedicated to EM fault injection. The EM hardware is controlled through several parameters (power,waveform,…). It is adapted from low-end microcontroller (e.g. ST32) to high-end multocore SoC (e.g. Rasberry Pi3).Data acquisition is done through a high-speed oscilloscope.The target is inside a Farady cage to avoid exteral EM perturbance. The device is mounted on a X-T-Z table allowing a high precision position of the probe. Several probes are available large coverage or precise coverage. Home-made probe for specific usage can also be used. A camera inside the cage allows a visual positioning of the device under the probe. 

MoM Platform

The Mom platform is dedicated in one hand to grab malware from external database, to execute them on a Windows (7/810 operating system 32 and 64 bits) bare metal platform. Then, the platform stores the live samples in a database labelling with a probable identification. In the other hand, MoM can execute anti ransomware solution 24/7 on the slaves, recording several parameters like the number of byte lost before detection, the number of files lost and so on.

The automated process is the following: a new image with different is loaded on a slave, a ransomware is sent to the slave, a session is automatically simulated (mouse, keybord, applications processes,…) and the ransomware is executed. If after a 15 minutes delay no activity is detected, a new image is loaded and a new ransomware is tested.If the ciphering activity is detected then the test results are stored in the database.
