Next-Generation Secure Computer Systems: Post-Quantum Cryptosystems
In this workshop, we introduce a set of highly-optimized, parameterizable hardware modules to serve as post-quantum primitives for faster design space exploration of post-quantum cryptosystems, especially, cryptosystems using Ring-LWE algorithms. This post-quantum primitive set consists of the four frequently-used security components: the public key cryptosystem (PKC), key exchange (KEX), oblivious transfer (OT), and zero-knowledge proof (ZKP). These primitives will serve as the fundamental building blocks for constructing secure systems in the post-quantum era.
BRISC-V: A RISC-V Open-Source Architecture Design Space Exploration Toolbox
With the introduction of the RISC-V instruction set architecture (ISA) and its rapidly growing ecosystem and community, there may be a unique opportunity to broaden participation in computer architecture design to groups who have been traditionally severely underrepresented. The RISC-V being an open, royalty-free, ISA with many extension specifications, it offers a high degree of customization and represents an attractive option for many applications. In this workshop, we present the BRISC-V toobox - the Boston University RISC-V based architecture design exploration suite for education and research.
