Protecting Power Management Circuits Against Trojan Attacks

A technical paper titled “Hardware Trojans in Power Conversion Circuits” was published by researchers at UC Davis. Abstract: "This report investigates the potential impact of a Trojan attack on power conversion circuits, specifically a switching signal attack designed to trigger a locking of the pulse width modulation (PWM) signal that goes to a power field-effect transistor (FET). The fi... » read more
