National Science Foundation award will secure microchip design and manufacturing
The National Science Foundation selected Siddharth Garg, a member of the New York University computer hardware security research team, to receive a prestigious award for promising young faculty. He will use the accompanying grant to develop IC logic encryption and split manufacturing techniques that could secure microchips. The design and production of microchips is a highly decentralized process, much of it done offshore. This increases the possibilities of pirating, counterfeiting, and inserting malicious adaptations.
