ICHST 2021

3rd International Conference on Hardware Security and Trust

October 22-24, 2021丨Nanjing, China


Sponsored by School of Cyber Science and Engineering Southeast University, China


2021 3rd International Conference on Hardware Security and Trust (ICHST 2021) will be held in Nanjing, China during October 22-24, 2021, with sponsorship of School of Cyber Science and Engineering Southeast University, China, as the workshop of ICSIP 2021.

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.

2021 3rd International Conference on Hardware Security and Trust (ICHST 2021) is an annual symposium which aims to facilitate the rapid growth of hardware-based security research and development. It highlights new results in the area of hardware and system security. Relevant research topics include techniques, tools, design/test methods, architectures, circuits, and applications of secure hardware.

* News: Due to the need of epidemic prevention and control situation and other technical reasons, after discussion between the school and the Organizing Committee, the ICHST 2021 Conference originally scheduled for July 9-11, 2021 is postponed to October 22-24, 2021. Some scholars who did not meet the deadline for submission can continue to submit. The submission deadline has been postponed to August 15. The organizing committee also has sufficient time to review the submissions.

2021年第三届硬件安全与信任国际会议作为ICSIP2021会议的分会, 将于2021年10月22-24日在中国南京召开,由东南大学主办, 东南大学网络空间安全学院承办。会议旨在为与会者提供一个交流的平台,讨论硬件安全与信任领域的最新研究成果和未来的研究方向。同时,我们希望本次会议能够建立起国家间,学术界与产业界,政府和非政府间的联系,能鼓励交流和分享,以促进硬件安全与信任行业的发展。
