CESG Seminar: Hardware-Based Acceleration of Homomorphic Encryption

October 30 @ 10:40 am - 11:30 am

Dr. Michail (Mihalis) Maniatakos Associate Professor in Electrical and Computer Engineering New York University at Abu Dhabi, UAE (Zoom link below) Title: Hardware-Based Acceleration of Homomorphic Encryption Talking Points: - Introduction to homomorphic encryption - Hardware designs for accelerating homomorphic encryption - Architectural support for homomorphic encryption - High-level framework for compiling C++ program with homomorphically encrypted operands Abstract: The rapid expansion and increased popularity of cloud computing comes with no shortage of privacy concerns about outsourcing computation to semi-trusted parties. While cryptography has been successfully used to solve data-in-transit (e.g., HTTPS) and data-at-rest (e.g., AES encrypted hard disks) concerns, data-in-use protection remains unsolved. Homomorphic encryption, the ability to meaningfully manipulate data while data remains encrypted, has emerged as a prominent solution. The performance degradation compared to non-private computation, however, limits its practicality. In this talk, we will discuss our ongoing efforts towards accelerating homomorphic encryption at the hardware level. We will present the first ASIC implementation of a partially homomorphic encrypted co-processor, as well as discuss the prototype of a fully homomorphic encryption accelerator. The talk will also introduce E3, our framework for compiling C++ programs to their homomorphically encrypted counterparts, as well as E3X, our architectural extensions for accelerating computation on encrypted data demonstrated on an OpenRISC architecture. Biography: Michail Maniatakos is an Associate Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering at New York University Abu Dhabi, UAE, and a Global Network University Associate Professor at the NYU Tandon School of Engineering, USA. He is the Director of the MoMA Laboratory (nyuad.nyu.edu/momalab). He received his Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering, as well as M.Sc., M.Phil. degrees from Yale University, New Haven, CT, USA. He also received the B.Sc. and M.Sc. degrees in Computer Science and Embedded Systems, respectively, from the University of Piraeus, Greece. His research interests, funded by industrial partners, the US government, and the UAE government, include privacy-preserving computation, industrial control systems security, and machine learning security. Prof. Maniatakos has authored several publications in IEEE transactions and conferences, holds patents on privacy-preserving data processing and serves in the technical program committee for various international conferences. His cybersecurity work has also been extensively covered by Reuters and BBC.     Click for Zoom Link: or: https://tamu.zoom.us/j/94526994449?pwd=RXNqYTRPeG14enFuVTh2N3dzRTJQZz09 Meeting ID: 945 2699 4449; Passcode: Fall2020

CESG SEMINAR: 5G Antenna Optimization

November 6 @ 10:40 am - 11:30 am

Dr. Pavlos Lazaridis Professor in Electronic and Electrical Engineering University of Huddersfield, UK (Zoom link below) Title: 5G Antenna Optimization Talking Points: - Evolutionary optimization algorithms - 5G base and mobile antennas - GPU computing   Abstract: Results of several antenna optimizations will be presented using particle swarm optimization (PSO), invasive weed optimization (IWO), and differential evolution (DE) and Nvidia GPUs. 5G base and mobile terminal antenna examples will be briefly presented and the efficiency of algorithms will be assessed. Biography: Dr. Pavlos Lazaridis is a Professor in Electronic and Electrical Engineering at the University of Huddersfield, UK. He received the Electrical Engineering degree from the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Greece, in 1990, the MSc. degree in Electronics from Université Pierre et Marie Curie, Paris 6, France, in 1992, and the Ph.D. degree in Electronics and telecommunications from Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Télécommunications (ENST) and Paris 6, Paris, in 1996. From 1991 to 1996, he was involved with research on semiconductor lasers, wave propagation, and nonlinear phenomena in optical fibers for the Centre National d’Etudes des Télécommunications (CNET) and teaching at the ENST. In 1997, he became the Head of the Antennas and Propagation Laboratory, TDF-C2R Metz (Télédiffusion de France/France Télécom Research Center), where he was involved with research on antennas and radio coverage for cellular mobile systems (GSM), Digital Audio Broadcasting (DAB), and Digital Video Broadcasting-Terrestrial (DVB-T). From 1998 to 2002, he was with the European Patent Office, Rijswijk, The Netherlands, as a Senior Examiner in the field of Electronics and Telecommunications. From 2002 to 2014, he was involved with teaching and research at the Alexander Technological Educational Institute of Thessaloniki, Greece, and Brunel University, West London. He is leading the EU Horizon 2020 projects ITN-MOTOR5G and RISE-RECOMBINE for the University of Huddersfield. He is a member of the IET and a senior member of the IEEE.     Click for Zoom Link: or: https://tamu.zoom.us/j/94526994449?pwd=RXNqYTRPeG14enFuVTh2N3dzRTJQZz09 Meeting ID: 945 2699 4449; Passcode: Fall2020
