Workshop on Practical Hardware Innovations in Security Implementation and Characterization


Workshop on Practical Hardware Innovations in Security Implementation and Characterization

October 15th and 16th 2019

In the field of hardware security, following the introduction of Meltdown and Spectre attacks, 2019 saw a further development of numerous micro-architectural attacks. Also new emerging side channels were reported and are making it possible to conduct physical attacks remotely (e.g. screaming channels, FPGA-hammer). Within the idea of making cryptography as light as possible (LWC) and as long-term as possible (post-quantum cryptography), the need to efficiently implement emerging cryptography on hardware in a secure way is more and more vivid. This is for example illustrated by two ongoing competitive standardisation processes (NIST post-quantum and lightweight-cryptography).

In this context, the PHISIC workshop aims at providing an environment for exchange among academic and industrial experts of the embedded security arena. More precisely, PHISIC’2019 expects to:

Call for Talks and Posters

PHISIC’2019 is a workshop without proceeding. Presentations and posters will be publicly available after the workshop unless noted otherwise by the authors.

Talks will be 30 minutes long including 5-10 minutes for Q&A. Talks shall be in English. Observe that presenting does not prevent future or concurrent submission to any journal or conference with proceedings.


Please note that a special session on collaborative project in hardware security will be led by pole SCS.

Submission and deadline

We invite you to submit abstract (10-20 lines) for the talk sessions or posters before Monday 15th July 2019 to the organization committee:


Note that the registration is free of charge but the number of attendees (by invitation) is limited.

See accomodations and location or contact the organization committee for further explanation.
