Student Wins First Place at IEEE HOST

Doctoral student Kiruba Subramani recently earned a first place award at the 2018 IEEE International Symposium on Hardware-Oriented Security and Trust (HOST).

Subramani’s “Performance Randomization for Preventing Hardware Trojan Attacks in Analog/RF Circuits” demonstration earned first place in the symposium’s Best Hardware Demonstration Category.

The demo was prepared by Subramani; Dr. Angelos Antonopoulus, a former postdoctoral researcher in electrical engineering; Dr. Aria Nostratinia, professor of electrical and computer engineering; and Dr. Yiorgos Makris, professor of electrical and computer engineering and leader of the Trusted and RELiable Architectures (TRELA) Research Laboratory, of which Subramani is a member.

Dr. Yu Liu, a former member of the TRELA lab, won the same competition in 2016 for his demonstration entitled “Hardware Trojans in Wireless Cryptographic ICs: Silicon Demonstration and Detection Evaluation.”
