"Secure hardware: What are the BIG challenges?“ at 2nd IEEE International

Workshop on Hardware-Oriented Security and Trust


Durham, NH – July 27th, 2009 – Anti-Tamper and FPGA Security is needed to make PCBs tamper-proof. Intellitech Corporation, www.intellitech.com, the leader in lowering electronic product costs through IEEE standards, has announced that its CEO, CJ Clark, will present at the 2nd IEEE International Workshop on Hardware-Oriented Security and Trust. Mr. Clark's presentation provides insight into the current challenges in making tamper-proof PCBs and FPGAs. As the long standing chairperson of IEEE 1149.1/JTAG, Mr. Clark is a proponent of the benefits of IEEE 1149.1/JTAG and related standards but also outlines how, without proper care, JTAG can be used for hacking an electronic system. A copy of the slides presented (without audio) are on Intellitech's website at Anti-Tamper basics. HOST 2009 is co-located with the Design Automation Conference at the Moscone Center, San Francisco, July 27th, 2009. HOST focuses on hardware security issues in aerospace, military, defense, communications, wireless, networking, instrumentation, process and industrial control, automotive, and consumer applications.
