In our previous work , , we introduced generalized feed-forward shift registers (GF2SR, for short) to apply them to secure and testable scan design, where we considered the security problem from the viewpoint of the complexity of identifying the structure of GF2SRs. Although the proposed scan design is secure in the sense that the structure of a GF2SR cannot be identified only from the primary input/output relation, it may not be secure if part of the contents of the circuit leak out. In this paper, we introduce a more secure concept called strong security such that no internal state of strongly secure circuits leaks out, and present how to design such strongly secure GF2SRs.
