FICS Research Faculty Publish Two New Books on Hardware Security

Hardware IP Security and Trust

Edited by FICS Research Professors Prabhat Mishra, Swarup Bhunia and Mark Tehranipoor.

Published by Springer; 1st ed. 2017 edition (January 3, 2017)

This book provides an overview of current Intellectual Property (IP) based System-on-Chip (SoC) design methodology and highlights how security of IP can be compromised at various stages in the overall SoC design-fabrication-deployment cycle. Readers will gain a comprehensive understanding of the security vulnerabilities of different types of IPs. This book would enable readers to overcome these vulnerabilities through an efficient combination of proactive countermeasures and design-for-security solutions, as well as a wide variety of IP security and trust assessment and validation techniques. This book serves as a single-source of reference for system designers and practitioners for designing secure, reliable and trustworthy SoCs.

  • Discusses security and trust issues throughout the SoC life-cycle, including adversaries and attack surfaces, threat models and instances
  • Provides design for security techniques to protect against malicious modifications, piracy and reverse engineering
  • Describes safeguarding design techniques such as obfuscation, encryption, and watermarking
  • Introduces IP trust metrics and benchmarks and covers state-of-the-art techniques for validation of IP security and trust
