Hardware Security for Contactless 3-D Integrated Circuits

Hardware Security for Contactless 3-D Integrated Circuits

  • Applications accepted all year round
  • Competition Funded PhD Project (Students Worldwide)

Project Description

Hardware security has become a pressing issue for a broad variety of integrated systems developed for applications that process and/or store sensitive personal data. Although there are plenty of security methods to cipher this data, there has also been shown that several types of attacks can breach security thereby accessing the crucial data. A specific type of these threats, known more broadly as side-channel attacks [1], is called power analysis attacks [2] where the information about the encryption algorithm of the circuit and the key can be obtained by observing the power profile of the circuit (typically by non-invasively accessing some of its power pins).

The research question that this project intends to address is how these threats manifest for three-dimensional (3-D) circuits [3] and how they can be mitigated. In principle, the stacking of circuits is considered to increase the security strength of the system; however, this may not be the case for contactless 3-D circuits where power is also transferred wirelessly through on-chip inductors.

The student will investigate whether similar security attacks as those to RF tags can be applied to this type of circuits and propose countermeasures for this type of attacks. Obfuscation methods, modulation of the transferred power to mask the power profile of the executed by the circuit task are some possible ways to address these security issues. The focus will be on sensing based systems which process, extract, and potentially store sensitive medical information.

This PhD project offers an exciting opportunity to work primarily in developing new ideas that will lead to novel design methods for securing this type of 3-D circuits. The student will have the opportunity to design test circuits through multi-project wafer services and thus evaluate the efficiency of the proposed methods through silicon measurements. Consequently, high quality and impactful publications are expected to be produced during the course of this project. Circuit design skills, knowledge of 3-D integration and heterogeneous technologies as well as deep understanding of hardware security will be acquired, all of which are key elements for careers in the semiconductor and more broadly the electronics industry.

Keywords: Hardware security, side-channel attacks, three-dimensional integration, cryptography.

Post Doc — Modeling ultrasonic acoustic transport phenomena in lithium — ion batteries

Post Doc — Modeling ultrasonic acoustic transport phenomena in lithium — ion batteries

RESEARCH FIELD

Mathematics — Numerical analysis — Simulation

ABSTRACT

Lithium — ion batteries use have grown very quickly in the last years, mainly due to their high energy density. The battery management system is only based on only few key parameters (U, I, T) for estimating of the state of charge, the remaining capacity and to prevent any safety issues. Additional information are required to improve the battery management and the use of ultrasonic acoustic waves to probe the battery’s materials during its operation is very promising. It can provide additional information of great richness on the materials change within the battery. The objective of the proposed post-doctoral internship is to rely on models of propagation of ultrasonic waves within the materials to better understand their dependence on the operating state of the battery. The modeling of experimental results from CEA / Liten will be based on assumptions describing the physical modifications of the materials that constitute a battery during its operation. The ultrasonic propagation will be simulated using tools available at the CEA / List, notably the CIVA platform, or using new models to be developed.

Postdoc position: Intermediate temperature sodium sulphur battery for residential energy storage — NaSTOR prototype

Postdoc position: Intermediate temperature sodium sulphur battery for residential energy storage — NaSTOR prototype

Research
Scientific aim: Energy storage concepts will be increasingly used in the near future as a result of increased implementation of renewable energy sources in energy infrastructure. In this aspect, batteries are considered as suitable candidates for compensating the intermittency of the renewable sources like solar and wind energy. Sodium-sulphur batteries (NaSBs), are considered as potential energy storage systems for stationary electric storage applications. The main advantages of NaSBs are the high energy density, high efficiency of charge/discharge, long cycle life, and that they are fabricated from abundant and low cost materials. NaSBs batteries employ sodium (Na) and sulphur (S) as active electrode materials, and beta-alumina (Al2O3) ceramic membranes as the Na+-conducting electrolyte. Traditional NaSBs operate at high temperatures of 300-350C, where both of the electrodes are in a molten state for having the optimum electrochemical reactivity, and for the beta-alumina membranes to have the optimum ionic conductivity. However, safety issues related with high temperature operation triggered novel NaSBs battery concepts, which aims at operating temperatures just above the melting point of sodium (i.e. 120-150C). These operating conditions introduce challenges that need to be addressed for optimizing the new NaSBs.
