Although much attention has been directed to the study of security at the system and application levels, security and privacy research focusing on hardware and architecture aspects is still a new frontier. In the era of cloud computing, smartphones and Internet of Things (IoT), practitioners and researchers have to address new challenges and requirements in order to meet the ever-changing landscape of security research and new demands from consumers, enterprises, governments, defense and other industries.
HASP is intended to bring together researchers, developers, and practitioners from academia and industry, to share practical implementations and experiences related to all aspects of hardware and architectural support for security and privacy, and to discuss future trends in research and applications. To that end, papers are solicited from the areas, including, but not limited to:
In addition to regular research papers, authors are also invited to submit position papers or systemization-of-knowledge papers. Position papers should define new problems in hardware or architecture security and privacy topics. Titles of position papers should be prefixed with "Postition Paper:". Systemization-of-knowledge papers should consicely, but exhaustively, systematize and conceptualize existing knowledge (similar to SoK papers in S&P conferences, but focusing on hardware and architecture). Titles of Systemization-of-knowledge papers should be prefixed with "SoK:".
