IP Security Assurance Whitepaper Available
A whitepaper is now available from the IP Security Assurance (IPSA) Working Group that describes Accellera’s initial proposal to address the industry’s security concerns involving IP integration. Since integrators typically treat IP as a “black box,” vulnerabilities may inadvertently be inserted into an SoC/ASIC. The whitepaper details the objectives of the IPSA standard and its approach, along with real-case examples highlighting the methodology.
The IPSA Working Group is seeking input from the community on the whitepaper. To provide feedback or ask questions about the emerging IPSA standard, please use the newly established IPSA Community Forum.
