HW/SW Co-design for Security Systems

HW/SW Co-design for Security Systems

This is a past event

Tune in to our online seminar with Huimin Li from Delft University of Technology, Netherlands. Unpack the details of HW/SW co-design and its impact on constructing resilient security architectures. Understand how intertwining hardware and software methodologies can result in enhanced and secure electronic solutions.

The increasing sophistication and integration of Microcontroller Units (MCUs), Application-Specific Integrated Circuits (ASICs), and Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGAs) have reshaped the landscape of electronic systems, bringing along a new set of security challenges. As these technologies flourish, it becomes more critical than ever to ensure that they remain impervious to potential threats and vulnerabilities.

In this online seminar, Huimin Li, an imminent Ph.D. graduate from the Cyber Security research group at the EEMCS faculty of Delft University of Technology, will illustrate how the HW/SW co-design approach, combining the strengths of both hardware and software, can be harnessed to build fortified security systems. She will delve into the utilization of the RISC-V based platform and SoC FPGA platform for security-sensitive applications, emphasizing the design of cryptographic algorithms and Trusted Execution Environments (TEEs).

Through this seminar, attendees will gain:

  • Understanding of the potential vulnerabilities in integrated systems.
  • Insights into the methodologies of HW/SW co-design for security.
  • Knowledge on the application of RISC-V and SoC FPGA platforms in security frameworks.
  • Familiarity with the role of cryptographic algorithms and TEEs in bolstering system security.
