ReConFig 2009
2009 International Conference on ReConFigurable Computing and FPGAs 
December 9-11, 2009, Cancun, Mexico  
Special track on Reconfigurable Computing for Security and Cryptography.
Reconfigurable hardware offers unique opportunities for the design and
implementation of secure applications in embedded and high-end
computing platforms. High performance, carefully-controlled execution,
and physical isolation are just a few of the advantages that hardware
brings over software.  At the same time, new challenges appear, such
as the protection of intellectual property in a reconfigurable fabric,
and the protection of soft-hardware against malicious tampering. This
special track seeks the latest innovations in reconfigurable computing
for security and cryptography.
Topics of interest include the following:
- Hardware Implementation of Novel Cryptographic Algorithms and Protocols
- Reconfigurable Cryptographic Primitives
- Special-Purpose Hardware for Cryptanalysis
- Hardware Support for Trustworthy Software Execution
- True and Pseudo Random Generators
- Circuit Identification and Physical Unclonable Functions
- Efficient Methods for Protection of Hardware IPs
- FPGA Design Security
- Fault Attacks and Side-channel Attacks
- Hardware Tamper Resistance and Tamper Evidence
- Hardware Trojan Detection and Resistance
- Design Flows for Hardware-based Secure Systems
- Performance Evaluation of Secure Reconfigurable Hardware
