<p>Editor's note:</p><p>Hardware metering to prevent IC piracy is a challenging and important problem. The authors propose a combinational locking scheme based on intelligent placement of the barriers throughout the design in which the objective is to maximize the effectiveness of the barriers and to minimize the overhead.</p><p align="right"><it>&#x2014;Farinaz Koushanfar, Rice University</it></p>
