Abstract : Hardware Trojans are malicious modules causing vulnerabilities in designs. Secured hardware designs are desirable in almost all applications. So, it is important to make a trustworthy design that actually exposes malfunctions when a Trojan is present in it. Recently, ring oscillator based detection methods are gaining prominence as they help in detecting Trojans accurately. In this work, a non-destructive method of Trojan detection by modifying the circuit paths into oscillators is proposed. The change in frequencies of ring oscillators upon taking the process corners into account, indicate the presence of Trojans. Since Transient Effect Ring Oscillators (TERO) are also emerging as a good alternative to classical ring oscillators in Trojan detection, an effort is made to analyze the detection capability. Evaluation is done using ISCAS'85 benchmark circuits. Comparison is done in terms of frequency and findings indicate that TERO based Trojan detection is precise. Evaluation is carried out using Xilinx Vivado and ModelSim platforms.
