ABSTRACT
FPGAs combine the programmability of processors with the performance of custom hardware, and they are becoming more common in critical embedded systems. This raises interesting security implications, and new techniques are needed to manage security in FPGA designs. This article provides background on FPGA security problems and current research on reconfigurable devices and security. The authors also discuss their work to develop a set of security primitives and a component architecture for building highly secure systems on FPGAs.
