Implementation of Internet-of-Things (IoT) can take place in many applications, for instance, automobiles, and industrial automation. We generally view the role of an Electronic Control Unit (ECU) or industrial network node that is occupied and interconnected in many different configurations in a vehicle or a factory. This condition may raise the occurrence of problems related to security issues, such as unauthorized access to data or components in ECUs or industrial network nodes. In this paper, we propose a hardware (HW)/software (SW) framework having integrated security extensions complemented with various security-related features that later can be implemented directly from the framework to All Programmable Multiprocessor System-on-Chip (AP MPSoC)-based ECUs. The framework is a software-defined one that can be configured or reconfigured in a higher level of abstraction language, including High-Level Synthesis (HLS), and the output of the framework is hardware configuration in multiprocessor or reconfigurable components in the FPGA. The system comprises high-level requirements, covert and side-channel estimation, cryptography, optimization, artificial intelligence, and partial reconfiguration. With this framework, we may reduce the design & development time, and provide significant flexibility to configure/reconfigure our framework and its target platform equipped with security extensions.
