Vulnerabilities in many embedded systems including cars, voting machines, medical devices, etc. have been recently demonstrated. These incidents raise an important question - how should security be considered during the design phase? It is well-known that incorporating security late in a design is a recipe for disaster (e.g. the Internet). But how should security be prioritized with other design criteria like cost, power, and reliability. At what point can threats be modeled and defenses defined. The panel will discuss the vulnerabilities in integrated circuits and embedded systems and potential solutions to building-in security during design.
