SecRec - Security in Reconfigurable Devices: Challenges and Solutions
September 2, 2016, Lausanne, Switzerland
Aim and Scope:
Reconfigurable systems are used to control critical application or to handle sensitive information. To safely and
reliably implement such systems, it is of paramount importance that designers have a complete awareness of the
risks to be avoided, the main security threats, and the most advanced protection available.
Similar to other digital circuits, designs implemented using FPGAs are susceptible to physical attacks and to
Nevertheless, FPGAs offer new and unique possibilities for implementing secure features,
including quantum resistant algorithms, and for guaranteeing robustness against reverse engineering.
The SecRec Workshop aims to bring researchers and experts together to discuss current and future research
directions regarding threats, attacks, design methodologies, and basic blocks currently used to address security
problems using reconfigurable hardware.
