Do You Really Know What Is In Your Computer? Perspectives on Verifiable Supply Chains

Speaker: Andrew “bunnie” Huang

Abstract: We normally think of design verification as an activity that wraps up once a product goes to production. However, in the face of increasingly adversarial supply chains, it can no longer be taken for granted that the product’s intention matches the product received by the end customer. In this talk we will briefly overview the adversarial landscape of the supply chain, and then switch gears to discuss a range of potential solutions.
