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.


Mark Tehranipoor is currently the Intel Charles E. Young Professor in Cybersecurity at the ECE Department, University of Florida. His current research interests include: hardware security and trust, counterfeit electronics detection and prevention, supply chain risk management, and reliable and testable circuit design. Dr. Tehranipoor has published over 250 journal articles and refereed conference papers and has given more than 150 invited talks and keynote addresses since 2006. He has published six books and ten book chapters. He is a recipient of several best paper awards as well as the 2008 IEEE Computer Society (CS) Meritorious Service Award, the 2012 IEEE CS Outstanding Contribution, the 2009 NSF CAREER Award, and the 2014 MURI award. His projects are sponsored by both the industry (Semiconductor Research Corporation (SRC), Texas Instruments, Freescale, Comcast, Honeywell, LSI, Avago, Mentor Graphics,R3Logic, Cisco, Qualcomm, MediaTeck, etc.) and Government (NSF, ARO, MDA, DOD, AFOSR, DOE, etc.).
