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 Summit 2021 is a special virtual event that includes Keynote and Visionary talks and panels on hot topics in the area of Hardware Security. The virtual site will go live on December 13, 2021 at noon EST for registered attendees. HOST Summit 2021 will have a followup event in June 2022.

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.
