The objective is to make students aware of dependability and security constraints from a hardware point of view. Theoretical bases are explained in lectures and practical examples are then experienced.




Reliability and Safety

  • issues and types of perturbations
  • approaches to protect against perturbations
  • evaluation of teh dependability level


  • issues and evolutions
  • certification principles
  • types of hardware attacks ; examples and charactérization
  • protection methods (couter-measures)


Digital design, computer architecture, VHDL


Evaluation combining two parts:
- one exam (written, two hours for first session - may be oral in second session)
- continuous control: two reports on practical work (per group of two students, no change of score in second session)

N1 = (1/2 E1 + 1/2 TP)
N2 = (1/2 E2 + 1/2 TP)

S1: 50% DS écrit, 50% Rapport des TP

S2: 50% Rattrapage oral ou écrit pour la partie DS, 50% note de TP non rattrappable
