 + 
 +EPROM/​EEPROM/​flash can be erased by shining UV light or x-rays into the surrounding oxide. This slightly oxidizes it, letting the floating gate to drain out.

 +===== Angle ===== 
 + 
 +Some chips with shielding against this type of attack can be bypassed by shining light at a sharp angle 
 + 
 +====Mask ===== 
 + 
 +Use nail polish or similar compound. Most materials will block UV, so just about anything will work. Nail polish tends to be easy to work with including application and (acetone) removal. 
 + 
 +Use a fine point pipette for simple chips. 
 + 
 +For finer masks, place the chip in a large bowl with a shallow layer of acetone at the bottom. This creates an acetone "​shield gas" to prevent tools from drying out. Then put some nail polish on a single bristle (maybe held by tweezers) and it should not dry out, allowing you to paint it onto the die.
