Abstract : Virtual instrumentation is a powerful tool that has been largely left unexplored in the domain of hardware security. It facilitates creation of automated tests to detect the presence of Trojans in a circuit thereby reducing the chance of human errors and the time required for testing. The presence of a stealthy Trojan in large VLSI circuits could lead to leakage of confidential information even in high-security applications such as defense equipment. Here, we propose the usage of virtual instrumentation to detect the presence of a delay-based Trojan in a circuit. Our results confirm that VI-based systems provide a cheap, self-sufficient, easy-to-use interface, and flexible scheme which can be easily modified to accommodate any VLSI circuit. This can also be used in other detection techniques without the need for use of complex systems.
