3D IC Security


New hardware security threats occur in emerging three-dimensional (3D) integrated circuits (ICs). It is imperative to study the potential countermeasures for 3D ICs.

  • We are investigating the security vulnerability of 3D ICs while considering different attack models across the IC supply chain. New hardware Trojan models and impact of 3D power distribution network noise on power-based side-channel analysis attacks are being studied. 


  • We are developing 3D-specific countermeasures at the layout, circuit, and architecture levels to produce trustworthy 3D ICs without relying a trusted foundry.
