Abstract
JTAG provides full and open access to the internal state of all JTAG-enabled components of a system under test. While this capability is critical to the development and system maintenance processes, it is a backdoor into all JTAG-enabled system components. This project seeks to eliminate/secure the JTAG backdoor by developing secure extensions to the JTAG standard; these secure extensions will control access to the JTAG boundary scan ports on all digital ICs and systems including commercial microprocessors, FPGAs, and ASICs.
