Welcome to the webpage of the Seventh Workshop on Attacks and Solutions in Hardware Security (ASHES 2023)!

ASHES deals with any aspects of hardware security, and welcomes any contributions in this area, including practical, implementation-related, or theoretical works. Besides any traditional hardware topics, ASHES also welcomes promising emerging methods and application areas. 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 its rapidly developing areas, ASHES hosts four categories of papers: Classical full and short papers, as well as systematization of knowledge papers (which overview, structure, and/or categorize a certain subarea), and wild and crazy papers (whose purpose is rapid dissemination of promising, potentially game-changing new ideas without full demonstration).

All accepted ASHES papers will be published the ASHES Workshop Proceedings in the ACM Digital Library.  They are also invited for extended versions at a special, annually appearing ASHES issue at Springer’s Journal of Cryptographic Engineering (JCEN).

The workshop will include two invited keynotes, namely Ravikanth Pappu (formerly MIT/Apeiron Labs), and Claire Vishik (formerly Group CTO Intel/Stealth Startup).

We look forward to seeing you in Copenhagen, Denmark!
