It is well understood that for Internet of Things (IoT), security of underlying hardware is the key to safe and reliable operation. IoT service stack relies on security of network, software, and firmware, all of which, in turn, depend on functionality provided by the underlying hardware. The hardware may be compromised or attacked by multiple threat actors. The designer may create a backdoor that... Read more on IEEE Xplore

In the growing heterogeneous Internet of Things market, which embraces a plurality of vendors and service providers, IP protection plays a central role. This paper proposes a process for the detection of IP theft in VLSI devices that exploits the internal test scan chains, designed for production test automation. The scan chains supply direct access to the internal registers in the device,... Read more on IEEE Xplore

Connected devices are getting attention because of the lack of security mechanisms in current Internet-of-Thing (IoT) products. The security can be enhanced by using standardized and proven-secure block ciphers as advanced encryption standard (AES) for data encryption and authentication. However, these security functions take a large amount of processing power and power/energy consumption. In... Read more on IEEE Xplore
