Welcome to the webpage of the Third Workshop on Attacks and Solutions in Hardware Security (ASHES 2019), a post-conference satellite workshop of ACM CCS 2019 in London, England.

ASHES deals with any aspects of hardware security, and welcomes any contributions in this area. Among others, it particularly highlights emerging techniques and methods as well as recent application areas within the field. This includes new attack vectors, novel designs and materials, lightweight security primitives, nanotechnology, and PUFs on the methodological side, as well as the internet of things, automotive security, smart homes, pervasive and wearable computing on the applications side. Please see our call for papers for further details.

In order to meet the requirements of these rapidly developing subareas, ASHES hosts four categories of papers: Classical full and short papers, as well as systematization of knowledge papers (which overview, structure, and categorize a certain subarea), and wild and crazy papers (whose purpose is rapid dissemination of promising, potentially game-changing novel ideas). Our call for papers has all the specifics.

The workshop will include several technical sessions and two invited keynotes by Ross Anderson (Cambridge) and Francois-Xavier Standaert (UC Louvain).

We look forward to seeing you in London!
