Abstract
Dr. Hassan Salmani and Dr. Mohammed Tehranipoor have developed a collection of publically available hardware Trojans, meant to be used as common benchmarks for the analysis of detection and mitigation techniques. In this thesis, we evaluate a selection of these Trojans from the perspective of a computer scientist with limited electrical engineering background. Note that this thesis is also intended to serve as a supplement to the existing documentation, since it provides a thorough description of each benchmark. This description presents a detailed analysis of each Trojan’s activation conditions and post-activation activity. In addition, we describe the difficulties we encountered in synthesizing and simulating each Trojan, and, where possible, provide solutions to those difficulties.
