System on Chips (SoCs) that serve as the backbone of IoT endpoint devices, need to protect the hardware itself against diverse physical attacks, as well as support building secure software, network, and systems. With trust issues arising from an untrusted supply chain and growing demand from the innovative application space, SoC vendors face unprecedented challenges to provide security assurance to device makers, developers and users. The security issues are varied and span all levels – from IPs to systems – and the solutions require significant re-thinking. The panel, comprised of distinguished members of SoC industry, will debate on defining the right path to SoC security solution in the IoT age. A platform security architecture, an IP-centric security solution, or powerful CAD to accelerate time-to-security – what would make it tick? How to handle untrusted components? What would be the roles of metrics and standards in designing next-gen secure SoC?
