Given the widespread use of analog functionality (i.e., physical interfaces, sensors, actuators, wireless communications, etc.) in most contemporary systems, a comprehensive study of the HT threat in AMS/RF ICs and IPs is long overdue and urgently needed. The objective of the research proposed is to fill the gap through a thorough investigation of the possible attack vectors, along with the development of commensurate protection mechanisms and the proliferation of a suite of benchmark circuits and an experimentation platform whereon known and new threats and solutions can be demonstrated and evaluated, respectively.
