DescriptionThe security of electronic circuits is becoming one of the most critical issues in the semiconductor industry. Malicious actors in the electronic supply chain may be interested in stealing the intellectual property (harming the design houses’ businesses) of the user’s data (harming the end users’ security and privacy). More and more integrated circuits are being designed at the system level to reduce design and verification costs. Working at the system level also broadens the scope of vulnerabilities that can be detected. However, most of the current security solutions are targeting the lower levels of abstraction (especially the gate level). This session aims at presenting the current view on the security challenges for electronic system-level design, where we think these challenges should be targeted all together. This is a timely topic not only for academic research but also for industry, where there is a strong interest for such high-level methods. In this context, the top-notch research groups involved in this special session can offer their viewpoint
