SoCurity: A Design Approach for Enhancing SoC Security

View publication


We propose SoCurity, the first NoC counter-based hardware monitoring approach for enhancing heterogeneous SoC security. With SoCurity, we develop a fast, lightweight anomalous activity detection system leveraging semi-supervised machine learning models that require no prior attack knowledge for detecting anomalies. We demonstrate our techniques with a case study on a real SoC for a connected autonomous vehicle system and find up to 96% detection accuracy.
