To enhance the system integrity of FPGA-based embedded systems on hardware design, we propose a hardware security scheme for nonvolatile resistive random access memory (RRAM) based FPGA, in which internal block RAM (BRAMs) are used for configuration and temporary data storage. The proposed scheme loads obfuscated configurations into nonvolatile BRAMs to protect design data from physical attacks and utilizes Chip DNA to enable logic function. © 2013 IEEE.
