Hardware Security: Attack and Defense
DescriptionWith increasing computation of various applications, dynamic voltage and frequency scaling (DVFS) is gradually deployed on FPGAs. However, its reliability and security haven't been sufficiently evaluated. In this paper, we present a practical DVFS fault attack targeting at the SkyNet accelerator IP and successfully destroy the detection accuracy. With no knowledge about the internal accelerator structure, our attack can achieve more than 98% detection accuracy loss under ten vulnerable operating point pairs (OPPs). Meanwhile, we explore the local injection with 1 ms duration and next double the intensity which can achieve more than 50% and 74% average accuracy loss respectively.
