What we do

The Centre for Hardware Security conducts research in all applied aspects of hardware security: the aim is to validate security techniques in real silicon. The Centre's research on integrated circuit (IC) design, electronic design automation (EDA), and cryptographic hardware enables trustworthy IC-based systems to be built. Threats such as hardware Trojans, reverse engineering, circuit (de)obfuscation, IP piracy, IC overbuilding, side-channel attacks, etc., are addressed through an array of technical countermeasures. A portfolio of the chips designed at the Centre is available here.
