GDSII-Guard: ECO Anti-Trojan Optimization with Exploratory Timing-Security Trade-Offs.
DescriptionHardware Trojan has emerged as a major security threat, but previous design-time countermeasures lack sufficient consideration of good trade-offs between design security and performance. This work proposes an automatic framework, SiliconGuard, to strengthen implemented physical layouts against potential Trojan attacks while preserving design performance, power, and quality (DRC). An Engineering Change Order (ECO) placement and routing (P\&R) flow containing elaborate anti-Trojan operators is developed to prevent Trojan insertion. Experimental results demonstrate that SiliconGuard can lower the risk of Trojan attacks on given designs by 99.8\% on average while improving timing at the same time, being far ahead of existing approaches.
