Call For Papers

The focus of this workshop is on all aspects of cryptographic hardware and security in embedded systems. The workshop is a forum for new results from the research community as well as from the industry. Of special interest are contributions that describe new methods for secure and efficient hardware implementations, and high-speed or leak-resistant software for embedded systems, e.g. smart cards, microprocessors, DSPs, etc. The workshop helps to bridge the gap between the cryptography research community and the application areas of cryptography. Consequently, we encourage submissions from academia, industry, and other organizations. All submitted papers will be reviewed. The topics of CHES 2009 include but are not limited to
Cryptographic Hardware

* Hardware architectures for public-key & secret-key cryptography
* Special-purpose hardware for cryptanalysis
* Cryptographic processors and co-processors
* Hardware accelerators for security protocols (security processors, network processors, etc.)
* True and pseudorandom number generators
* Physically Unclonable Functions (PUFs)

Cryptographic Software for Embedded Systems

* Efficient software implementations of cryptography for embedded processors
* Efficient and secure implementations of cryptography using multiprocessor cores
* Cryptographic libraries
* Cryptographic algorithms targeting embedded devices

Attacks Against Implementations and Countermeasures Against These Attacks

* Side channel attacks and countermeasures
* Faults and fault models for cryptographic devices
* Fault attacks and countermeasures
* Hardware tamper resistance
* Trojan hardware

Tools and Methodologies

* Computer aided cryptographic engineering
* Methodologies and environments for fair comparison of hardware and software efficiency of cryptographic algorithms, architectures, and implementations
* Partial and run-time reconfiguration of cryptographic systems
* Reliability and fault tolerance in cryptography and cryptanalysis
* Architectures for trusted computing

Applications & Implementation Environments

* Cryptography in wireless applications (mobile phone, WLANs, etc.)
* Cryptography for pervasive computing (RFID, sensor networks, etc.)
* FPGA design security
* Hardware IP protection and anti-counterfeiting techniques
* Reconfigurable hardware for cryptography
* Smart card processors, systems and applications
* Security in commercial consumer applications (pay-TV, automotive, etc.)
* Secure storage devices (memories, disks, etc.)
* Technologies and hardware for content protection
* Security for embedded software and systems

Instructions for Authors

Authors are invited to submit original papers via electronic submission for the CHES 2009 Hot Topic Session: Hardware Trojans and Trusted ICs. The electronic submission site for Hot Topic Session is available here. The submission deadline for regular papers for CHES 2009 has passed.

The submission must be anonymous, with no author names, affiliations, acknowledgments, or obvious references. It should begin with a title, a short abstract, and a list of keywords. The paper should be at most 12 pages (excluding the bibliography and clearly marked appendices), and at most 15 pages in total, using at least 11-point font and reasonable margins. Submissions not meeting these guidelines risk rejection without consideration of their merits. All submissions will be blind-refereed.

Policy against double submission

Only original research contributions will be considered. Submissions that substantially duplicate work that any of the authors have published elsewhere, or have submitted in parallel to any other conferences or workshops that have proceedings, will be instantly rejected. Moreover, authors should be aware that the IACR Policy on Irregular Submissions will be strictly enforced.
Important Dates

All deadlines end on 23:59 Pacific Daylight Time (PDT) also called UTC-7 (e.g. San Francisco) on the given date.
Submission deadline for hot topic session papers: Extended to Monday, April 27th, 2009
Submission deadline for regular papers: Monday, March 16th, 2009.
Acceptance notification: Monday, May 18th, 2009.
Final version due: Monday, June 15th, 2009.
Workshop presentations: Monday - Wednesday, September 7th - 9th, 2009.
