[liberationtech] How to defend against attacks on chips?

So we know the NSA is spying on the word. We know pretty much how they
do it and we know that at least part of that spying and data collection
is likely done by exploiting holes in software. We can fix that. We can
move people to better software, not rely on software from companies who
routinely turn over data, push open software, etc.

But how do we handle hardware attacks? For example, what happens when a
chip maker, say Intel, collaborates with the government to allow access
to users systems from the chip level? How can we defend against this?
