Best Practices for Anti-counterfeiting Design

In order to best mitigate counterfeiting risks, chips should include four essential countermeasures:

  1. Anti-emulation: Make it impossible to mimic the chip with a low-cost MCU or easily rebuild it as an ASIC using a low-cost technology.
  2. Anti-reverse engineering: Make it as difficult as possible for reverse-engineers to correctly determine a chip’s circuitry, ROM or NVM contents.
  3. Latent Features: Latent countermeasures used to detect and revoke clones after they’ve been fielded.
  4. Anti-tamper: Make it difficult for an adversary to obtain secret data and/or analyze the chip’s internal operations.


Rambus anti-counterfeiting solutions provide semiconductor makers, authentication IC makers, and their OEM customers a path to easily to deploy our field-proven countermeasures in their products.
