Hardware plays an integral role in system security with many emerging vulnerabilities and defense mechanisms targeting hardware. The conference unites expert researchers, practitioners, and students to discuss and disseminate ideas, technologies, and results in all areas of overlap between hardware and security.
The virtual program includes four keynote sessions, one visionary speaker, an exhibition, four live panel discussions, and multiple interactive Q&A sessions on technical papers, demos, and posters.
Program highlights include: • 2017 ACM A.M Turing Award Winner Prof. David Patterson discusses how and why experts should demonstrate their ideas by enhancing realistic hardware-software systems, such as open-source RISC-V platforms.
• Listen to Chief Security Officer of Synopsys, Deirdre Hanford, on industry awareness and enablement for secure design from software to silicon in support of in EDA, IP and software integrity.
• Attend and engage in panel discussions on quantifiable assurance, high-level synthesis, and RISC-V
• Access pre-recorded video for papers and hardware demos on topics such as reverse engineering and physical attacks, IoT, SoC/platform, FPGA and cyber physical system security, adversarial machine learning, and counterfeit detection.
• Participate in one-on-one meetings and hear elevator pitches about products and services from CAD/EDA vendors, defense contractors, and anti-tamper/SCA market leaders
TUTORIAL: Hardware plays an integral role in system security with many emerging vulnerabilities and defense mechanisms targeting hardware. The HOST tutorial day welcomes experts from academia, industry, and government to teach beginners and experts on timely topics in hardware-oriented security.
The virtual tutorial day includes three live 1.5 hour tutorials, three live 1.5 hour tutorials, and an hour long student-industry networking/mentorship event.
The HOST 2020 tutorials are:
• “Physical Inspection for Hardware Assurance” by Prof. Navid Asadi
• “Protecting Confidentiality and Integrity of Deep Neural Networks against Side-Channel and Fault Attacks” by Profs. Yunsi Fei, Thomas Wahl , and Xue Lin
• “Electromagnetic and Machine Learning Side-Channel Attacks and Low-overhead Generic Countermeasures” by Profs. Shreyas Sen and Arijit Raychowdhury
• “Security Issues in AI and Their Impacts on Hardware Security” by Prof. Gang Qu, Dr. Rosario Cammarota (Intel AI Research), Dr. Pin-Yu Chen (IBM Research Trusted AI Group), and Dr. Lin Yuan (Amazon AI)
• The two most popular tutorials from HOST 2019: “CAD for Security” by Profs Mark Tehranipoor and Farimah Farahmandi, and “Property Driven Hardware Security” by Prof. Ryan Kastner and Dr. Nicole Fern
