Abstract (in Japanese) (See Japanese page) 
(in English) Fault injection attacks are attacks that intentionally introduce faults into a running device in order to expose internal confidential information. In particular, laser fault injection is an effective fault injection method with high spatial controllability, and can cause both transient and persistent faults in circuits on FPGAs. To counter this threat, some countermeasures have been proposed to detect laser-induced fault injection by using a digital sensor that can only be configured with digital circuits. Time-to-digital converter (TDC) is a digital sensor that converts signal delay into digital value, and has recently been proposed as a sensor for detecting fault injection attacks. However, the effectiveness of TDC for laser fault detection in FPGAs has not been experimentally verified. Therefore, this paper implements a highly resolution TDC using CARRY logic on Kintex-7 FPGA and analyzes its response to laser irradiation to verify the effectiveness of TDC for laser fault detection.
