Hardware security

NYU Washington, DC welcomed the NSF Foundations of Secure and Trusted Hardware (FOSTER) Workshop. The FOSTER Workshop format is designed to be highly interactive, featuring panel discussions, informal discussions, and break-out sessions.

The aim of this workshop was to convene representatives from the major stakeholders in the hardware security arena  —  government,  industry,  and academia  —  at a common venue. The FOSTER workshop sought to define the roadmap and agenda for the next phase of hardware security research and identify concrete pathways for the transition to practice.

The workshop was highly interactive, featuring panel discussions, informal discussions, and break-out sessions. Further, the workshop placed a strong emphasis on hearing from the end-users of hardware security solutions: industry and government. 

The workshop was enabled by a generous grant from the National Science Foundation.
