HOST | IEEE International Symposium on Hardware Oriented Security and Trust

IEEE International Symposium on Hardware Oriented Security and Trust (HOST) is the premier symposium that facilitates the rapid growth of hardware-based security research and development. Since 2008, HOST has served as the globally recognized event for researchers and practitioners to advance knowledge and technologies related to hardware security and assurance.


The HOST 2020 virtual site will go live on December 3, 2020 at noon EST for registered attendees, who will be given early access to technical paper presentation videos, hardware demo videos, and posters. Since these videos will not be played during event in a session, attendees are encouraged to watch them before the session.

Rapid proliferation of computing and communication systems with increasing computational power and connectivity into every sphere of modern life has brought security to the forefront of system design, test, and validation processes. The emergence of new application spaces for these systems in the internet-of-things (IoT) regime is creating new attack surfaces as well as new requirements for secure and trusted system operation. Additionally, the design, manufacturing and the distribution of microchip, PCB, as well as other electronic components are becoming more sophisticated and globally distributed with a number of potential security vulnerabilities. Therefore, hardware plays an increasingly important and integral role in system security with many emerging system and application vulnerabilities and defense mechanisms relating to hardware.
