Thanks for letting us know about the chip vulnerabilities as many people or probably hackers try exploit through our databases and I might consider this article as some precautions not to leave some vulnerabilites. Thanks for the share.

FPGA chip itself needs to fetch programmable data from memory to run. Perhaps this data is not encrypted and so it can be hacked.

FPGAs are more vulnerable than most people realize.  Take a look at these two (2) links for more details:

 
  1. FPGA AES DPA Demo: http://www.cryptography.com/technology/dpa/fpga-board-video.html
  2. FPGA Protected Bitstream Vulnerability: http://gcn.com/articles/2011/07/25/fpga-chips-cracked-researchers-dpa.aspx

 

As you can see, obtaining the cryptographic keys from an FPGA is relatively easy using DPA methods.  On the commercial side of things, you will find many routers using FPGA technology.  So, not only should the military consumers be concerned, but also a large portion of the commerical IP infrastructure.

Its interesting to know that people can hack FPGAs. Doesnt look that simple though. Thought hardware is much difficult to crack then software. But yes counterfeit is a big busniess and when you order in larger quantities there are many chips that can be tampered.
