Fault-injection based dependability analysis has proved to be an efficient mean to predict the behavior of a circuit in presence of faults. Emulation-based approaches enable fast and flexible analyses of significant designs such as processors running significant application software. This paper presents the results obtained with an encryption application and questions the usefulness and the effectiveness of detection mechanisms in both hardware and software.
