This paper presents a novel reference-free hardware Trojan detection technique in gate-level net list-based on controllability and observability analyses. Using an unsupervised clustering analysis, the paper shows that the controllability and observability characteristics of Trojan signals present significant inter-cluster distance from those of genuine signals in a Trojan-inserted circuit such that Trojan signals are easily distinguishable.
