A dynamic camouflaging approach to prevent intellectual property theft

… Out of all existing defenses against IP piracy, only logic locking has so far been found to offer effective end-to-end protection. To address these challenges, a research team at the New York University Center for Cybersecurity and Quantum Nanoelectronics Lab has developed a dynamic camouflaging approach to thwart IP reverse engineering at all stages of the supply chain. "The globalization of the integrated circuit supply chain has resulted in the outsourcing of various steps of the microelectronic chip production," Nikhil Rangarajan, [Ph.D. student in electrical and computer engineering at the NYU Tandon School of Engineering], one of the researchers who carried out the study, told TechXplore.
