Red Team Event on Hardware IP Protection
An open competition across the globe involving teams of students, faculty members, or industry practitioners, on evaluating the security of state-of-the-art countermeasures against attacks on hardware IP confidentiality, e.g., reverse engineering and cloning. Teams will be given a suite of protected designs using open-source benchmarks for security evaluation. The specific countermeasures implemented into the protected designs will include logic locking, obfuscation of state space, and hardware redaction. Participating teams will aim at breaking the defense by recovering the original design from a protected one or the secret key used in the protection.
Participating teams need to provide reports and demonstrate the results of their evaluation through videoconference. Top teams will be selected by a panel of expert judges for large monetary prizes and certificates.
