In this chapter, we try to highlight the importance of hardware security in modern systems. Increasingly we are connected to loosely controlled networking infrastructures such as IoT and intelligent transportation networks. In such networks, users are connected in an ad hoc style, which makes users'authentication and identity management a very complex problem. Modern security frameworks, especially in battery-based devices, rely on hardware security to protect confidential information and secret data. The ICs used in such systems must be protected against different hardware attacks, such as side-channel attacks and HT insertion.
