Reference Paper Trustworthy Electronics

Part I: Definition, Threats and Assessment of Solution Approaches

Cover Reference Paper Trustworthy ElectronicsThe reference paper “Trustworthy Electronics” is being developed under the Velektronik project, which is being funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) . The aim of the Velektronik project is to support projects under the umbrella of the Trustworthy Electronics (ZEUS) funding program by collecting their content, organizing the results in a holistic manner and identifying gaps. This reference paper makes great contributions to achieving this goal. The paper will be extended in several parts in an annual fashion. Part 1 of the paper covers the following aspects:

  • A definition of trustworthy electronics (Section 1). This definition helps to delimit the topic and to explain the relationship with both IT security and technological sovereignty.
  • Then, an overview of the electronics value chain is illustrated (Section 2). It systematically explains the threats to trustworthiness based on three essential categories. Examples clarify these categories in a comprehensible way (Section 2.2). Based on this, threats are prioritized according to their relevance (Section 3).
  • In addition, three simple assessment criteria are defined to set out the positive impact of solution approaches on trustworthy electronics (Section 4).
  • The projects funded by the BMBF under the ZEUS funding program are scrutinized in this context to identify gaps in the fields covered (Sections 4.1 and 4.2).
  • A summary is followed by an outlook including impetus for further research (Section 5).
