Research Institution
We will create a proof-of-concept evaluation environment where white-hat hackers can create and test known and suspected Trojan circuits, evaluate their behaviors and impacts, and assess the Trojan circuits against various countermeasures. The appliance will be able to replicate or emulate, in hardware, a Trojan and its trigger in the context of a predetermined design; to discover methods to exercise, trigger, or expose that Trojan/trigger; to note the Trojans behavior and match it against the behavior of real circuits; and to evaluate that Trojan/trigger against countermeasures that would prevent it from disabling a semiconductor device.
