Research Workshop – Secure IoT Hardware

February 25, 2022, Online


While the Internet of Things (IoT) promises billions of connected sensing devices collecting, processing, and communicating unprecedented amounts of data, each device represents a potential access point for security breaches that expose personal information or cause harm to human life or essential infrastructure. Through presentations and open discussion, this 1/2-day virtual workshop will bring researchers from academia, industry, and government together to discuss the latest research results, grand challenges, and infrastructure needs to enable design, manufacture, and test of secure IoT products supporting applications in Canada’s key economic sectors.

Topics (include, but are not limited to the following)

  • Open-source hardware, in particular, RISC-V as a platform for hardware security research
  • AI and machine learning in embedded security
  • Infrastructure needs (tools, equipment) and collaborative opportunities for a common platform for research
  • Data interception and extraction
  • Advanced hardware exploitation techniques (side-channel attacks, fault injection, etc.)

Target Attendees

The workshop is open to professors, research associates and graduate students at Canadian universities as well as government and industrial attendees who wish to provide input and advice.
