As FPGAs are now offered on the cloud and widely used in critical applications (infrastructure, military, medical), this exposes many potential security issues in which attackers can deploy attacks remotely. This demo will take a closer look at malicious bitstreams and demo our FPGA bitstream virus scanner FPGADefender that can scan for signatures relating to malicious circuits and many forms of bitstream manipulations. Additionally, we show a deny-of-service power-hammering attack, which can serve as a template for hardware Trojans.
