We invite you to join us at DAC for a luncheon with a brief update on Accellera activities from our Chair Lu Dai, followed by an informative and thought-provoking panel addressing IP security issues.
Security is as important to electronic systems as functionality is. This statement is bold, but it is reality. While the need is obvious in mission-critical applications such as automotive, communications, defense, industrial, and medical, no one wants to see their cell phone compromised or have their robotic lawnmower run amok. Therefore, security principles must exist in all levels of these systems, must be addressed at all phases of product development, and must be sustained throughout the product lifecycle.
The experts seated on the Accellera panel at DAC will discuss the challenges and approaches needed to address security. Among the topics we will explore are:
• Responsibilities of system architects, program managers, and engineers
• Requirements for a trusted development process across the design chain
• Assessing security levels of IP blocks and sustaining security through SoC integration
• Sustainability of security for deployed products as new threats arise
• Lei Poo, Analog Devices
• Serge Leef, DARPA
• Brent Sherman, Intel and IP SA Working Group
• Andrew Dauman, Tortuga Logic
• Adam Sherer, Cadence and IP SA Working Group Secretary
We’ll start with a series of questions from our panel moderator and will open the discussion to audience questions. Please join us for this lively discussion as we address a broad topic impacting every electronic system.
The Accellera-sponsored luncheon is free to DAC attendees, but registration is required.
