    In this work, I concentrate on two attacking scenarios: 1. Time Side Channel Attacks: An attacker correlates the execution time of a binary program executing on a low-noise embedded system on bare metal to extract internal implementation details of the victim program and even extract secret information such as cryptographic keys. 2. Reverse Engineer Attacks: In addition to further hide implementation details of the, the original source code is obfuscated making it unintelligible to an attacker.

    Mapping of graphs is known to be an NP-complete problem. In Coarse Grained Reconfigurable Architectures (CGRA) this problem occurs, if a Data Flow Graph (DFG) needs to be mapped onto the available physical hardware. The mapping should not only achieve a high utilization of resources, but also avoid increasing the height of the graph (=execution time) of the application.
