CESG Seminar: “Trustworthy Integrated Circuit Design”

CESG Seminar: “Trustworthy Integrated Circuit Design”

May 5 @ 11:30 am - 12:30 pm

“Trustworthy Integrated Circuit Design” Abstract: Designers use third-party intellectual property (IP) cores and outsource various steps in their integrated circuit (IC) design and manufacturing flow. As a result, security vulnerabilities have been emerging, forcing IC designers and end users to reevaluate their trust in ICs. If an attacker gets hold of an unprotected IC, attacks such as reverse-engineering the IC and piracy are possible. Similarly, if an attacker gets hold of an unprotected design, insertion of malicious circuits in the design and IP piracy are possible. To thwart these and similar attacks, we have developed three defenses: IC camouflaging, logic encryption, and split manufacturing. IC camouflaging modifies the layout of certain gates in the IC to deceive attackers into obtaining an incorrect netlist, thereby, preventing reverse engineering by a malicious user. Logic encryption implements a built-in locking mechanism on ICs to prevent reverse engineering and IP piracy by a malicious foundry and user.  Split manufacturing splits the layout and manufactures different metal layers in two separate foundries to prevent reverse engineering and piracy by a malicious foundry. We then describe how these techniques are enhanced by using provably-secure techniques thereby leading to trustworthy ICs.

CESG Fishbowl Seminar: “Latency Analysis for Distributed Storage”

CESG Fishbowl Seminar: “Latency Analysis for Distributed Storage”

May 11 @ 2:30 pm - 3:30 pm

Prof. Parimal Parag, Dept. of ECE, Indian Institute of Science Abstract: Modern communication and computation systems consist of large networks of unreliable nodes. Yet, it is well known that such systems can provide aggregate reliability via information redundancy, duplicating paths, or replicating computations. While redundancy may increase the load on a system, it can also lead to major performance improvements through the judicious management of additional system resources. Two important examples of this abstract paradigm are content access from multiple caches in content delivery networks and master/slave computations on compute clusters. Many recent works in the area have proposed bounds on the latency performance of redundant systems, characterizing the latency-redundancy trade-off under specific load profiles. Following a similar line of research, this work introduces new analytical bounds and approximation techniques for the latency-redundancy trade-off for a range of system loads and two popular redundancy schemes. The proposed framework allows for approximating the equilibrium latency distribution, from which various metrics can be derived including mean, variance, and the tail decay of stationary distributions. Bio: Parimal Parag is currently an assistant professor in the department of electrical communication engineering at the Indian Institute of Science at Bangalore. He was working as senior systems engineer in R&D at ASSIA Inc. from October 2011 to November 2014. He received his B. Tech. and M. Tech. degrees from Indian Institute of Technology Madras in Fall 2004; and PhD degree from Texas A&M University in Fall 2011. He was at Stanford University and Los Alamos National Laboratory, in the autumn of 2010 and summer of 2007, respectively. He conducts research in network theory, applied probability, optimization methods, and in their applications to distributed systems. His previous work includes performance evaluation, monitoring, and control of large broadband communication systems and networks.   Free: Snacks & Drinks
