Session 11 : Special Session - Panel I

Wednesday May 4th, 2016 | Time: 16:20 - 17:50

Topic: Hardware-Enabled System Security
Panel Moderator: Saverio Fazzari, Booz Allen Hamilton

Abstract: This panel will focus on the role of hardware in driving system security, including security of the software stack and zillion applications running in a system. With new application spaces emerging, such as internet-of-things (IoT) and connected autonomous cars, hardware is poised to play increasingly important roles in designing secure systems. On the other hand, new security issues in hardware question the fundamental assumptions on hardware root of trust. How we deal with these issues to build secure hardware trust anchors? A distinguished set of speakers in this panel will share their viewpoints on these issues and take us to the future.
