ICHST 2020

2nd International Conference on Hardware Security and Trust

October 23-25, 2020丨Nanjing, China


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


2020 2nd International Conference on Hardware Security and Trust (ICHST 2020) will be held in Nanjing, China during October 23-25, 2020, with sponsorship of School of Cyber Science and Engineering Southeast University, China, as the workshop of ICSIP 2020.

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.

2020 2nd International Conference on Hardware Security and Trust (ICHST 2020) 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.

2020年第二届硬件安全与信任国际会议作为ICSIP2020会议的分会, 将于2020年10月23-25日在中国南京召开,由东南大学主办, 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。

Because of coronavirus, Southeast University has decided to postpone ICHST 2020. Proposed new dates are October 23-25, 2020. Sorry for the inconvenience may cause you. 由于疫情,并为了响应政府的号召,主办方东南大学将会议延期到10月23-25召开, 感谢您的理解.

Due to the recent cold weather, the epidemic situation is not completely stable, and the personal safety of the participants is the primary concern. Considering that the cross provincial/cross-border flow of personnel brought by the on-site conference, and personnel gathering for the conference/meals, may bring a series of uncertain consequences to the personal safety of the participants, the Ministry of Education rejected the application for this on-site conference. We are sorry to inform you that ICHST 2020 Conference has to be held online as fully virtual conferences.

(考虑到现场会议带来的人员跨省/跨国流动,人员聚集开会/用餐等等,可能会对作者人身安全带来的一系列不确定后果,教育部驳回了本次线下 会议的申请。会务组很遗憾的通知您:ICHST 2020 会议不得不改成全网络形式召开.)
