Abstract

System-on-Chip (SoC) is the driving force behind computing and communication in a wide variety of electronic systems, ranging from simple devices in smart homes to complex systems in satellites. Network-on-Chip (NoC) is a commonly used solution for on-chip communication between components in complex SoCs. To meet cost and time-to-market constraints, SoCs are designed using various hardware components, often gathered from untrusted third-party vendors. Despite increasing importance of trusted communication in overall system security, NoC security is relatively under-investigated. This project will develop a secure NoC architecture to enable trusted communication between components in NoC-based SoCs.
