Secure remote reconfiguration of FPGAs


This paper presents a solution for secure remote reconfiguration of FPGAs. Communicating the bitstream has to be done in a secure manner to prevent an attacker from reading or altering the bitstream. We propose a setup in which the FPGA is the single device in the system\u27s zone-of-trust. The result is an FPGA architecture that is divided into a static and a dynamic region. The static region holds the communication, security and reconfiguration facilities, while the dynamic region contains the targeted application
