Due to globalization of Integrated Circuit (IC) design flow, rogue elements in the supply chain can pirate ICs, overbuild ICs, and insert hardware trojans. EPIC [1] obfuscates the design by randomly inserting additional gates; only a correct key makes the design to produce correct outputs. We demonstrate that an attacker can decipher the obfuscated netlist, in a time linear to the number of keys, by sensitizing the key values to the output. We then develop techniques to fix this vulnerability… CONTINUE READING
