Special Track: Reconfigurable Computing for Security and Cryptography

website: (

Reconfigurable hardware offers unique opportunities for the design and
implementation of secure applications in embedded and high-end computing
platforms. High performance, carefully-controlled execution, and
physical isolation are just a few of the advantages that hardware brings
over software. At the same time, new challenges appear, such as the
protection of intellectual property in a reconfigurable fabric, and the
protection of soft-hardware against malicious tampering. This special
track seeks the latest innovations in reconfigurable computing for
security and cryptography.
Topics of interest include the following:
• Hardware Implementation of Novel Cryptographic Algorithms and Protocols
• Reconfigurable Cryptographic Primitives
• Special-Purpose Hardware for Cryptanalysis
• Hardware Support for Trustworthy Software Execution
• True and Pseudo Random Generators
• Circuit Identification and Physical Unclonable Functions
• Efficient Methods for Protection of Hardware IPs
• FPGA Design Security
• Fault Attacks and Side-channel Attacks
• Hardware Tamper Resistance and Tamper Evidence
• Hardware Trojan Detection and Resistance
• Design Flows for Hardware-based Secure Systems
• Performance Evaluation of Secure Reconfigurable Hardware

Important dates:
submission deadline: July 31, 2009
