OneSpin names winners for its hardware trust and security challenge
By Electronics World
Over 40 organisations from the fields of 5G, AI, IoT and automotive participated in OneSpin’s fourth annual puzzle competition, held to highlight real-world problems of trust vulnerabilities in hardware designs and suggest ways to avoid them.
The puzzle required participants to find Trojans in the designs sourced from TrustHub and were allowed to use any tool available to them to reach a solution. Guidance was provided on how OneSpin solutions would allow the Trojans to be found. Participants were required to submit waveforms of the traces that activate these Trojans.
The challenge’s goal was to highlight the awareness of vulnerability risks associated with Trojans and to suggests a path to automatic detection of these types of IC supply chain attacks.
Winners Nithin Kumar Guggilla of Xilinx, Tero Kuusijärvi of NOKIA, and Wayne Yun of AMD found the Trojans; they receive Bose SoundSport wireless headphones.
