IEEE International Symposium on Hardware Oriented Security and Trust
(HOST) aims to facilitate the rapid growth of hardware-based security
research and development. HOST highlights new results in the area of
hardware and system security. Relevant research topics include techniques,
tools, design/test methods, architectures, circuits, and applications of
secure hardware. HOST 2017 invites original contributions related to, but
not limited by, the following topics.

* Hardware Trojan attacks and detection techniques
* Hardware techniques to facilitate software and/or system security
* Hardware-based security primitives (PUFs, RNGs)
* System-on-chip (SoC) security
* Side-channel attacks and protection
* Security, privacy, and trust protocols
* Metrics, policies, and standards related to hardware security
* Hardware IP trust (watermarking, metering, trust verification)
* Trusted manufacturing including split manufacturing and 3D ICs
* Security analysis and protection of Internet of Things (IoT)
* Secure and efficient implementation of crypto algorithms
* Reverse engineering and hardware obfuscation
* Supply chain risks mitigation (e.g., counterfeit detection & avoidance)
* Hardware tampering attacks and protection
* Applications of hardware security to secure system development
