Taiwanese semiconductor information security startup JMEM Technology has developed integrated solutions aimed at addressing firmware- and software-level vulnerabilities in an effort to bolster data security, according to Digitimes. One-time programmed memory will be prioritized by JMEM TEK's solution for chip-stored data, with the OTP solution enabling users to write data following chip receipt as a means to prevent tampering, said JMEM TEK founder and CEO John Chang. Meanwhile, JMEM TEK Chief Technology Officer Paul Lo noted that JMEM has been developing a solution offering physical unclonable functionality to devices that would provide biometric-like device identification. "In addition, we are also working on the design of encryption processing chip IP and the prevention of bypass attacks, such as the use of laser probing or electronic waves to understand the circuit feedback. We are not trying to replace the software, but rather to propose a combination of software and hardware to make the product more secure," said Chang.
