This report summarizes the progress on the Efficient Cross-Layered IP Protection Scheme ECLIPSE project. In addition to developing security metrics and proofs, we apply the proposed stripped-functionality logic locking SFLL technique and demonstrate it on a field-programmable gate array FPGA platform. The report also highlights our efforts towards protecting multiple outputs of circuit, unlocking circuits using machine learning, and developing a logic tool that implements different variants of logic locking. The report also summarizes the latest benchmarking and red-teaming efforts on our defense as part of Cybersecurity Awareness Worldwide 2019 competition, which was the first logic locking contest.
