Workshop on Secure RISC-V (SECRISC-V) Co-located with ISPASS 2020
Boston, Massachusetts, USA
April 5-7, 2020

Submissions Due: February 7, 2020

The first international workshop on Secure RISC-V (SECRISC-V) architecture design exploration seeks original research papers on the design, implementation, verification, and evaluation of micro-architecture security features, hardware-assisted security techniques, and secure executions around the RISC-V instruction set architecture (ISA).

Co-located with ISPASS 2020 – April 5-7, 2020 – Boston, Massachusetts

Submission of early work is encouraged. The RISC-V ISA based topics of specific interest for the workshop include, but are not limited to:

• Secure cores and multicores

• ISA extensions for Security

• Software and hardware obfuscation Techniques

Secure, efficient, and lightweight hardware implementations

• Hardware security solutions for machine learning

• Secure design for emerging applications: IoT, robotics, wearable computing

• Architectural designs and hardware security solutions for HPC, Data Centers and cloud computing

• Hardware virtualization and isolation for security

• Hardware-Software co-design solutions: graph analytics,

• Post-quantum cryptosystem designs

• Quantum Computing

• Neuromorphic Architectures

• Blockchain enabled secure computing

Classic and Modern encryption algorithms and hardware support

• Hardware security support for integrity and authentication, key distribution and management, and trust platform modules

• Software and core authentication

• Secure execution environment 

• Secure root of trust bios     

• Memory subsystem organization to secure data accesses

• Network-on-Chip (NoC) security feature to process and compute isolation

The paper must be submitted in PDF format. The content of the submission is limited to four (4) pages – 8.5″x11″ single-spaced double-column.
