Logic locking, a popular countermeasure against IP piracy and counterfeiting, has been a target of several attacks, especially Boolean satisfiability attacks. The state-of-the-art solutions against SAT attack struggle to meet a fundamental criterion of logic locking, i.e., high output corruption for wrong keys. In this brief, we propose a new logic locking scheme, called Encrypt Flip-Flop , which mitigates SAT attack on sequential circuits by preventing unauthorized access to the scan data. Security analysis on Encrypt Flip-Flop demonstrates its ability to thwart other advanced attacks like path sensitization, logic cone-based, removal, bounded model checking, etc., on reasonably large circuits. Experimental results on ISCAS’89 and ITC’99 benchmarks show that our proposed method can produce reasonable output corruption for wrong keys.
