Secure Systems-on-a-Chip Architectures

The National University of Singapore invites applications for two Research Fellows (Postdocs) in the Department of Computer Science, School of Computing (SoC). SoC is strongly committed to research excellence in all its dimensions: Searching for fundamental results and insights in developing novel computational solutions to a wide range of applications, building large-scale experimental systems, developing theories and policies for effective management of information systems in organizations, and improving the well being of society.

The researchers will be responsible for working closely with the Principal Investigators (PIs) on a 5-year research project called SOCure, together, in collaboration with industry. The goal of the SOCure project is to assure hardware security by design in SoCs, by introducing the ability to withstand the presence of untrusted on-chip Intellectual Properties (IPs), as well as physical attacks. 

The SOCure project pursues HW security with minimal overhead to target future Internet-of-Things (IoT) devices. The HW security challenges are investigated through explicitly coupling architectures and physical protection to ensure physical integrity and confidentiality of on-chip data. Such a holistic approach aims to raise the level of security, and at the same time reduces the typically substantial silicon area and power overhead due to the security requirements.

Researchers will lead a team to develop secure, isolated hardware platforms (for small, IoT-style systems) while maintaining efficiency and performance. This is done through the development of novel designs that enable isolation and security, even in the presence of shared hardware resources. Two positions are available in core and Network-on-Chip security design. He/she should possess experience or interest in at least one of the following research areas:
  • Hardware and Systems Security
  • Computer Architecture
  • Energy Efficient SoC Design / NoC Design
  • Simulation Methodologies
