Design Security and Cyber-Physical Threats
The trustworthiness of reconfigurable hardware, such as FPGAs is defined by the mechanisms protecting the configuration data. The field programmability of an FPGA is a distinct feature enabling various possibilities, but it is also introducing new vulnerabilities. Therefore, the protection of the overall platform and all configured Intellectual Property (IP) is of utmost importance. As aforementioned, authentication and system integrity reporting are the most important measures required. However, for the protection of IP, confidentiality is an additional issue. The Overall level of design security determines the general conditions for the trustworthiness of a device.
