Abstract : Several methodologies aim at tackling the issue of Hardware Trojans through the help of a “Golden Reference”, which is not always available; thereby arises the need for an efficient method without a Golden Reference. This work involves the detection of Hardware Trojan in a circuit using an improved voting algorithm employing CRC. Two modifications to a conventional voting algorithm are proposed in this chapter along with CRC to improve the detection efficiency. This logic-based detection procedure avoids the requirements of complex pre-processing procedures like segmentation, fingerprinting, thermal imaging, etc., The following proposed modifications (i) incapacitates the bias toward 1s and incorporating CRC for comparison of bit streams and (ii) equal weight of 1 is given as initial weight to all CUTs, which gives better results in voting algorithm. Detection accuracy is found to be around 95.27% based on the detailed analysis with infected and non-infected ISCAS’85 and ISCAS’89 circuits.
