HyLock: Hybrid Logic Locking Based on Structural Fuzzing for Resisting Learning-based Attacks

Mohammad Moradi Shahmiri; Bijan Alizadeh

Volume 15, Issue 3 , October 2023, , Pages 109-115


  The growing popularity of the fabless manufacturing model and the resulting threats have increased the importance of Logic locking as a key-based method for intellectual property (IP) protection. Recently, machine learning (ML)-based attacks have broken most existing locks by exploiting structural traces ...  Read More

Cross-Device Deep Learning Side-Channel Attacks using Filter and Autoencoder

Maryam Tabaeifard; Ali Jahanian

Volume 15, Issue 3 , October 2023, , Pages 149-158


  Side-channel Analysis (SCA) attacks are effective methods for extracting encryption keys, and with deep learning (DL) techniques, much stronger attacks have been carried out on victim devices. However, carrying out this kind of attack is much more challenging in cross-device attacks when the profiling ...  Read More

An Obfuscation Method Based on CFGLUTs for Security of FPGAs

Mansoureh Labafniya; Shahram Etemadi Borujeni

Volume 13, Issue 2 , July 2021, , Pages 157-162


  There are many different ways of securing FPGAs to prevent successful reverse engineering. One of the common forms is obfuscation methods. In this paper, we proposed an approach based on obfuscation to prevent FPGAs from successful reverse engineering and, as a result, Hardware Trojan Horses (HTHs) insertion. ...  Read More

ASIC design protection against reverse engineering during the fabrication process using automatic netlist obfuscation design flow

Sh. Zamanzadeh; A. Jahanian

Volume 8, Issue 2 , July 2016, , Pages 93-104


  Fab-less business model in semiconductor industry has led to serious concerns about trustworthy hardware. In untrusted foundries and manufacturing companies, submitted layout may be analyzed and reverse engineered to steal the information of a design or insert malicious Trojans. Understanding the netlist ...  Read More

Security-aware register placement to hinder malicious hardware updating and improve Trojan detectability

M. Vosoughi; A. Jahanian

Volume 7, Issue 1 , January 2015, , Pages 75-81


  Nowadays, bulk of the designers prefer to outsource some parts of their design and fabrication process to the third-part companies due to the reliability problems, manufacturing cost and time-to-market limitations. In this situation, there are a lot of opportunities for malicious alterations by the off-shore ...  Read More
