Trojan Circuit Simulation and Evaluation
Lafrenz, Nicholas K.

2010, Master of Sciences (Engineering), Case Western Reserve University, EECS - Computer Engineering.
This thesis introduces a purpose built simulator for the evaluation of Trojan circuit detection methods. Due to the increasing reliance of society and the government on integrated circuits and the increasing amount of outsourcing of the fabrication of said ICs, it has become necessary to be able to detect the presence of a Trojan circuit in a given IC. The simulator developed in this thesis uses the specific characteristics and necessities of the Trojan circuit detection problem and introduces a tool for use in evaluating these Trojan circuit detection techniques for accuracy and efficiency. Fault simulation techniques are utilized in novel ways to speed up Trojan circuit simulation, resulting in significant performance increases.
