Security as a new dimension in embedded system design

Abstract

The growing number of instances of breaches in information security in the last few years has created a compelling case for efforts towards secure electronic systems. Embedded systems, which will be ubiquitously used to capture, store, manipulate, and access data of a sensitive nature, pose several unique and interesting security challenges. Security has been the subject of intensive research in the areas of cryptography, computing, and networking. However, despite these efforts, security is often mis-construed by designers as the hardware or software implementation of specific cryptographic algorithms and security protocols. In reality, it is an entirely new metric that designers should consider throughout the design process, along with other metrics such as cost, performance, and power. This paper is intended to introduce embedded system designers and design tool developers to the challenges involved in designin
