Abstract: This workshop will demonstrate how to identify assets in intellectual property (IP) in accordance with Accellera’s Security Annotation for Electronic Design Integration (SA-EDI) standard.  This guidance is planned to be documented in the IEEE P3164 Asset Identification whitepaper.

The SA-EDI standard relies heavily on the accurate identification of assets within an IP.  Any errors, either false positives or negatives, can render the SA-EDI collateral ineffective or non-applicable. Therefore, it’s essential not only to identify assets but also to classify them correctly. However, this is not as straightforward as one may think.  Contextual information of the IP’s integration, such as security requirements, use-cases, surrounding IPs, etc. are often needed in order to properly identify assets.  These are typically defined by the integrated circuit (IC) owner and well after the IP has been developed, which is when the SA-EDI collateral needs to be produced.

To address these challenges, the whitepaper introduces a methodical and practical approach that can be applied by IP owners with limited experience in security practices.  The methodology is vetted using four example IPs, ranging from simple to complex, to highlight how an IP developer can use to produce accurate SA-EDI collateral for the IC owner to properly consume and apply.   Don’t miss this opportunity to enhance your knowledge in security.
