Cyber-Physical and Embedded Systems Security: A Hardware Security Perspective

Speaker:  Charalambos Konstantinou – Jeddah, Saudi Arabia
Topic(s):  Security and Privacy


Embedded devices are increasingly integrated in several cyber-physical domains including power grid, home and automation networks, and smart/connected cars. The deployment of embedded systems in critical environments introduces security challenges: such devices are highly constrained in terms of performance and resources. Hence, it is often infeasible to employ the same security measures used in general purpose computing. Insecure mechanisms may be exploited maliciously and eventually allow adversaries to gain full control of embedded systems. To tackle these challenges, this talk discusses exploration of hardware features which readily exist in many embedded systems. Secure and trustworthy hardware can assist in improving the security of embedded systems.
