Power Fingerprinting (PFP)

Power Fingerprinting, Inc, Virginia, United States

TECHNOLOGY SUMMARY

Power Fingerprinting (PFP) provides cyber intrusion detection for SCADA, semiconductor, mobile, and network applications. Our independent, physical-layer approach detects tiny anomalies in power usage patterns to catch zero-day attacks and hardware trojans. PFP enables continuous, real-time monitoring in critical systems, requires no electrical contact/software install, and complements existing solutions.

Primary Application Area: IT, Cyber-Security, Software

Technology Development Status: Prototype

Technology Readiness Level: TRL 5

FIGURES OF MERIT

Value Proposition: PFP enables direct security monitoring of critical system, providing detection capabilities that did not exist before, without impacting the performance and operation of the targeted system. PFP is a new paradigm in cyber security, which is desperately needed in unaddressed markets such as embedded systems and supply chain validation
