A study on the effectiveness of trojan detection techniques using a red team blue team approach Conference Paper uri icon


  • As part of the Embedded Systems Challenge, we assess the effectiveness of Trojan detection techniques. The red team inserted different types of Trojans - combinational, sequential, reliability degrading, and performance degrading - into selected variants of a target design; the other variants are Trojan-free. The blue team has to correctly classify the Trojan-free and Trojan-infected variants. Seven different teams from six different universities performed the blue team activity using different types of Trojan-detection techniques, namely activation-based detection, and power- and delay-based side-channels. 2013 IEEE.
