Hardware and Architectural Support for Security and Privacy (HASP)
in conjunction with ISCA 2018
Los Angeles, California, USA
June 2, 2018

Submission Deadline: April 6, 2018 (extended deadline)
Notification of Acceptance: April 20, 2018
Camera-Ready Version: April 27, 2018

HASP is intended to bring together researchers, developers, and practitioners from academia and industry, to share practical implementations and experiences related to all aspects of hardware and architectural support for security and privacy, and to discuss future trends in research and applications. To that end, papers are solicited from the areas, including, but not limited to:
– Secure hardware processor architectures and implementations
– Side-channel attacks, evaluations, and defenses
– Secure cache designs and evaluation, focusing on side-channels
– SGX, SEV and Trustzone based systems and security solutions
– Hardware-enhanced cloud security
– Hardware support for secure Internet-of-Things
– Smartphone hardware security
– Hardware fingerprinting and PUFs
– Hardware and architectural support for trust management
– Hardware trojan threat evaluation, detection, and prevention
– Attack resilient hardware and architectural design
– Cryptographic hardware design, implementation, and evaluation
– Security simulation, testing, validation and verification
– Analysis of real attacks and threat evaluation

In addition to regular research papers, authors are also invited to submit position papers or systemization-of-knowledge papers. Position papers should define new problems in hardware or architecture security and privacy topics. Titles of position papers should have Postition Paper: as their prefix.

Systemization-of-Knowledge papers should consicely, but exhaustively, systematize and conceptualize existing knowledge (similar to SoK papers in S&P conferences, but focusing on hardware and architecture). Titles of Systemization-of-Knowledge papers should have SoK: as their prefix.

Finally, researchers wishing to share their ongoing work without publishing a paper should submit application for a Work-in-Progress presentation. To be considered, a short 4-page paper should be submitted, with WiP: as the prefix to the title. These papers will not be published in the proceedings, but the title and authors will be listed on the HASP web page as a public record of the presentation.
