Hardware Security of a chip is very important in order to prevent any electronic infusion or damage to the chip. Even if adding hardware security increases the cost of the chip, it secures the design which is very important. Software security can easily be the target for an attacker but those that include hardware security in their designs will be significantly stronger. Performance of a hardware secured chip is very important. This project depicts how we can achieve higher performance through pipelining. Pipelining helps to keep every part of the design busy by arranging them in a particular fashion. First, we divide our overall logic circuit into different parts and separate them using registers.
