Special Issues
Special Issue on Hardware Security
Submission Date: 2022-02-15

The trustworthiness and security of hardware is of paramount importance to full system security, as hardware is the bedrock of all computer systems. Recently discovered vulnerabilities in processors such as Spectre and Meltdown, and emerging trends such as the development and use of open source hardware and open source EDA tools, coupled with the use of machine learning and the relentless push towards smaller technology nodes, creates both challenges and opportunities for innovative technologies for enhancing hardware trust and security. This special issue of IEEE Transactions on Computers will explore academic and industrial research on all topics related to hardware security. Topics of interest to this special issue include, but are not limited to: - Design, implementation, and evaluation of “root of trust” elements such as Physical Unclonable Functions (PUFs), random number generators, cryptographic units, and key storage technologies - Side channel and fault attacks and countermeasures - Architectural support for security and privacy - Cryptography and isolation-based approaches to achieve security and privacy - Design and evaluation of secure systems - Design automation tools and methodologies for hardware security and trust - Interdisciplinary studies on security, reliability, usability, and economics
