Hardware Security Symposium Speaker Series

Microelectronics are key components in our defense systems, and assuring that they are both readily available and secure is critical for US national security. Hardware-based threats can have serious impacts on military or critical infrastructure, and hardware vulnerabilities include malicious insertions, Trojan horses, counterfeit parts, and rapid obsolescence. While the USG has made large investments in software-focused cybersecurity, hardware-based approaches have not received as much attention. The Hardware Security Symposium Speaker Series brings together leading experts in Trusted microelectronics from academia, government, and Industry, to discuss hardware security threats, and ways to mitigate them.


Speaker: Dr. Paolo Gargini, Former Director of Technology Strategy, Intel Corporation and Chairman of the International Technology Roadmap for Semiconductors (ITRS)

Since 1998 Dr. Paolo A. Gargini has served as the chairman of the International Roadmap for Semiconductors, and also heads the International EUV Initiative (IEUVI) and the International Consortia Cooperation Initiative (ICCI). In 2012, Dr. Gargini returned to the world of research after having worked for 34 years at Intel Corporation, where he served as the Director of Technology Strategy in Santa Clara, California. While at Intel, Dr. Gargini was responsible for worldwide research activities conducted by universities and consortia for the benefit of the Technology and Manufacturing Group.
