Reliable detection of Hardware Trojans


In the project SyPASS Infineon AG, Raith GmbH and Fraunhofer EMFT are collaborating to develop methods for the retrograde preparation of highly integrated safety circuits so as recover layout information. Comparison with design data is to ensure reliable detection of Hardware Trojans. The particular challenges confronting this project are the structures and layer thicknesses of less than 10 nm in the preparation, the stability of the mapping using scanning electron microscopy and finally the synthesis and analysis of huge quantities of data.
