Fundamentals of IP and SoC Security: Design, Verification, and Debug


It has been almost a decade since the number of smart, connected computing devices has exceeded the human population, ushering in the regime of the Internet of things [1]. Today, we live in an environment containing tens of billions of computing devices of diverse variety and form factors, performing a range of applications often including some of our most private and intimate data. These devices include smartphones, tablets, consumer items (e.g., refrigerators, light bulbs, and thermostats), wearables, etc. The trend is toward this proliferation to increase exponentially in the coming decades, with estimates going to trillions of devices as early as by 2030, signifying the fastest growth by a large measure across any sector in the history of the human civilization.
