MPSoCs have been proposed as a promising architecture choice to overcome the challenging embedded electronics requirements, characterized by tights development times and fast evolution of applications. The MPSoC flexibility, also represents a system vulnerability. As security requirements vary dramatically for different applications, the challenge is to provide MPSoC security that allows a trustworthy system that meets all the security requirements of such applications. NoC has become an

We integrate agile and dynamic security firewalls into the NoC in order to detect attacks based on different security rules. We evaluate the effectiveness of our approach over several MPSoCs scenarios and estimate their impact on the overall performance. We show that our architecture can perform a fast detection of a wide range of attacks and a fast configuration of the different security policies for several MPSoC applications.
