Security of Emerging Architectures
Farinaz Koushanfar - Univ. of California, San Diego
Computing of tomorrow will critically rely on radically new architectural paradigms, driven by a new set of applications, including deep learning, real-time classification of massive arrays of sensor data, comprehension and pattern recognition in big-data sets. Emerging architectures offer tremendous advantages with respect to various design objectives, but one important target has been neglected so far: security. Adversarial attacks can target a system’s communication links, the software running on it, and the humans using it. However, the system’s hardware is increasingly considered its Achille’s heel, as more and more at-tacks targeting the physical implementation of security-relevant functions. Recent purely hardware-oriented attacks called Meltdown and Spectre compromised millions of installed systems. The proposed session will consider the intricate relationship between emerging architectures and security from two sides. The first two talks will focus on security implications of novel architectural concepts: approximate computing and neuromorphic multi-processor SoCs. These paradigms are currently discussed without considering security, although systems designed according to these principles are well-suitable for security-critical tasks, like area surveillance or intrusion detection. The third talk will take a different approach: How should highly complex heterogeneous systems be designed when security is taken into account from the beginning? Security solutions discussed in the session will have to be addressed by holistic strategies where CAD tools will play a main role.
