Blackbox JTAG Reverse Engineering

Discovering what the hardware architects try to hide from you

Felix Domke

JTAG is an industry standard for accessing testmode functionality in almost any complex microchip. While the basics of JTAG are standardized, the exact implementation details are usually undocumented. Nevertheless, JTAG often allows you to interact with the chip very deeply, which makes it very interesting since it is often easily accessible thanks to the small pincount. This talk covers reverse engineering of JTAG interfaces when no or only limited documentation is available.
