8th Annual Cyber Security Next Generation Workshop


The annual Cyber Security Next Generation workshop in the Netherlands (supported by 4TU.NIRICT) aims to contribute to a stronger and more connected cyber security research community in the Netherlands. Seize this excellent opportunity to share ideas, experiences, and information, on the diverse topics of cyber security. Both researchers and practitioners working within the field of cyber security are cordially invited to join.

The 8th edition of this workshop will be held on the 13th of October, 2022 at the Aula Congress Center, Delft (Commisiekamer 3). Participation is free of charge

As in the previous years, the program committee is soliciting abstracts describing work on cyber security. The workshop also encourages the submission of interdisciplinary work on cybersecurity from related fields, including but not limited to all fields of criminology, law, economics, and psychology. All PhD and MSc students are encouraged to submit a one-page abstract in pdf-format, including names of the authors, affiliations and e-mail addresses. Submission is done by easychair: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=csng2022

"Design Automation for Security: History and Perspectives" by Dr. Francesco Regazzoni (UvA)

Abstract:  Physical attacks exploit the physical weaknesses of cryptographic devices to reveal the secret information stored on them. Countermeasures against these attacks are often considered only in the later stages of the full design flow, and applied manually by designers with strong security expertise. This approach, however, negatively affects the robustness, the cost, and the production time of secure devices.
A more effective way to implement secure cryptographic algorithms would enable the automatic application of side channel countermeasures and would support the verification of their correct application. This talk will revise and summarize the research efforts in this important research direction, from the first works implementing hardware design flow for security to the initial steps of automatically driving design tools using security variables, and it will highlight future research direction in design automation for security.
