Fault Injection and
Environmental Failure Testing
Fault induction is a process by which a device (and for the purpose of this discussion, in particular a cryptographic module) is forced to miscalculate defined operations, skip over required operations (such as password verification or self-tests), and exhibit other erroneous behaviors enabling the attacker (or tester) to gain access to sensitive data or unauthorized control of the device.
On September 1, 2015, DCI provided to SMPTE a memorandum regarding its investigation into the implications of SP800-56Br1 compliance, should NIST decide to enforce it. In May 2016, NIST announced that it would enforce SP800-56Br1. This document is an update to DCI’s earlier FIPS memoranda regarding impact to Media Block (MB) designs and the Key Delivery Message (KDM).
