Recently, design reuse has emerged as a dominant design and system-integration paradigm for modern systems on silicon. However, the intellectual-property-business model is vulnerable to many dangerous obstructions, such as misappropriation and copyright fraud. The authors propose a new method for intellectual-property protection that relies upon design watermarking at the combinational-logic-synthesis level. They introduce two protocols for embedding user- and tool-specific information into a… CONTINUE READING
