Cybersecurity Lecture Series: "A Tool for Reverse Engineering Mask ROM Firmware" by Travis Goodspeed

Abstract:

After chemically decapsulating, delayering, and staining a microchip, its ROM can be photographed to reveal the physical bits. This talk will describe how I wrote an open tool in Qt6 and C++ for annotating these photographs to painlessly extract tens of thousands of bits for reverse engineering. After chemically decapsulating, delayering, and staining a microchip, its ROM can be photographed to reveal the physical bits.
