Computing Community Consortium Blog

The goal of the Computing Community Consortium (CCC) is to catalyze the computing research community to debate longer range, more audacious research challenges; to build consensus around research visions; to evolve the most promising visions toward clearly defined initiatives; and to work with the funding organizations to move challenges and visions toward funding initiatives. The purpose of this blog is to provide a more immediate, online mechanism for dissemination of visioning concepts and community discussion/debate about them.

WATCH Talk- New Frontiers in Hardware Security and Trust

July 14th, 2015 / in Announcements, NSF / by Helen Wright


The next WATCH talk, called New Frontiers in Hardware Security and Trust is Thursday, July 16, 2015 from Noon-1pm ET.

The presenter is Mark Tehranipoor from the University of Florida. Mark is currently the Intel Charles E. Young Professor in Cybersecurity in the Department of Electrical & Computer Engineering. His current research interests include: hardware security and trust, counterfeit electronics detection and prevention, supply chain risk management, and reliable and testable circuit design.


Hardware security domain has received significant attention from researchers in academia, industry, and government due mainly to the globalized design, fabrication, and assembly of integrated circuits and systems. The complexity of today’s electronic components and systems supply chain has made it increasingly vulnerable to malicious activities, security attacks, and counterfeiting activities. In this talk, we will first analyze these vulnerabilities and threats. We will then present challenges dealing with emerging attacks and threats and present potential solutions to addressing them. Finally, we will present opportunities that securing hardware can provide at different application domains, different levels of abstraction, and from nano-device to systems.

The talk will be held in Room 110 at the National Science Foundation in Arlington, VA. No RSVP is necessary, and no visitor badges are required. It will also be webcast; you can register here
