Logic Locking at the RTL, Leveraging The Behavioral State Transition Coding For Obfuscation (University of Florida)

A new technical paper titled "ReTrustFSM: Toward RTL Hardware Obfuscation-A Hybrid FSM Approach" was published by researchers at University of Florida, Gainesville, FL. Abstract: "Hardware obfuscating is a proactive design-for-trust technique against IC supply chain threats, i.e., IP piracy and overproduction. Many studies have evaluated numerous techniques for obfuscation purposes. Neverth... » read more

U. Of Florida: Protecting Chip-Design IP From Reverse-Engineering

New research paper titled "Hardening Circuit-Design IP Against Reverse-Engineering Attacks" from University of Florida. "Design-hiding techniques are a central piece of academic and industrial efforts to protect electronic circuits from being reverse-engineered. However, these techniques have lacked a principled foundation to guide their design and security evaluation, leading to a long line... » read more
