Summer 2021

CSE 510 Hardware Trust and Security (Lecture)
Section: KWI
Instructor: Kevin A. Kwiat
Description: The trend of US semiconductor companies outsourcing their device fabrication (i.e., fabless manufacturing) is typically directed to specialized foundries that are overseas. An international electronics manufacturing company with suspected ties to a foreign government has recently brought the issue of malicious hardware to the forefront. The “buyer beware” mantra has taken on a more sinister meaning for procurers of microcircuits because now the prospect of a hardware Trojan looms. This course offers the means to seek solutions to such a vexing cyber threat.
