Differential Scanning Techniques for Detection of Security Vulnerabilities

A technique to discern security bugs in a SoC well in advance of tapeout.

Pros: Simulation based technique very similar to assertion based verification(ABV).

Cons: Not Static. (i.e like lint) need to have a simulation up and running. (which is not so easy for big SoCs)

Here is our invited talk on the same topic at DAC 2018:
