Logic Locking Competition
Logic Locking is a revolutionary technique for protecting Intellectual Property of Integrated Circuits from myriad security threats, such as reverse engineering, overbuilding, piracy, and hardware Trojan insertion. In this student-led Logic Locking Conquest Challenge, participants attempted to attack designs in an oracle less scenario. Team Bytewise Bandits won 1st Place. The members of the team are: Sudipta Paria, Aritra Dasgupta, and Pravin Gaikwad (Warren B. Nelms Institute, University of Florida) and Tanzim Mahfuz (University of Maine).
AI HARDWARE ATTACK CHALLENGE
The AI Hardware Attack Challenge required participants to insert a hardware vulnerability, such as a trojan or backdoor, into an open-source digital design using AI. Team Hardware Hacksmiths, comprised of students from the Warren B. Nelms Institute, won 2nd Place. The members of the team are: Sudipta Paria, Aritra Dasgupta, and Pravin Gaikwad.
