For the third consecutive year, a group of students from Grenoble INP - Esisar took part in the CSAW (Cyber Security Awareness Week) organised by Poly NYU which was held from 14 to 16 November 2013. The team won 4th place.
Rafael Conti, David Riff, Baptise Roux and Mouad Zeroual (5th -year students) who were supervised by David Hély, Lecturer, finished 4th amongst 9 other American universities in the Embedded system Challenge. This is the third consecutive year that a group of students from Grenoble INP-Esisar has taken part in the CSAW. This was a very good performance as this year our students went head-to-head with many teams of doctoral candidates whose theses relate directly to the topic of the competition. The aim of this competition was to highlight new security techniques to protect against the introduction of Hardware Trojans in the integrated circuits. Hardware Trojans may be inserted by suppliers or malicious designers and are especially hard to detect. These malicious circuits which are used for critical applications are potential time bombs which can be activated during cyber-attacks. This security risk is taken very seriously by cyber-defence organisations. CSAW is the largest university-based event addressing defence against cyber attacks and brings together universities as well as national and industrial organisations such as Intel, Qualcomm or Google. The students would not have been able to take part in the event without assistance from their sponsors Grenoble INP - Alumni and Thalès. Congratulations to Rafael, David, Baptise, Mouad and of course
