The swift advancements and growing intricacy of highly interconnected semiconductor systems have led to numerous security challenges that pose risks to the integrity, reliability, and performance of modern AI-driven systems. This presentation delves into the primary emerging security threats, such as supply chain attacks, intellectual property theft, hardware Trojans, side-channel attacks, fault injection attacks, and the looming threat of quantum computers. Neeraj Paliwal will examine the consequences of these threats across different industries and discuss how a hardware “secure by design” architectural approach is essential to secure semiconductor systems.
