This paper presents a secure test wrapper (STW) design that is compatible with the IEEE 1500 standard. STW protects not only internal scan chains but also primary inputs and outputs, which may contain critical information (such as encryption keys) during the system operation. To reduce the STW area, flip-flops in the wrapper boundary cells also serve as the LFSR to generate the golden key. Experimental results on an AES core show that STW provides very high security at the price of only 5% area overhead with respect to the original IEEE 1500 test wrapper.
