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.
