Discover the definition of the term Firmware (Microcode, Microprogramme) presented by Les Assises de la Cybersécurité.


Firmware is the code that makes electronic hardware work. It is therefore a very low-level program, the closest to the hardware. And in cybersecurity, it's usually the one that's closest to the hardware that wins. Firmware has therefore become the focus of a fierce battle between hackers and manufacturers. The former have designed malicious code capable of burrowing into firmware, resisting reinstallation of the operating system or taking control of it before any security solution can be launched, while the latter have developed secure bootchain systems to ensure the integrity of the firmware.

Needless to say, Tupperware does not produce firmware.
