👨🏻💻 Train hardware security experts.
🔐Design and develop advanced methodologies and automated tools for detecting hardware security vulnerabilities, and
🔎 Aid community testing and open sourcing.
HackTheSilicon is the premier hardware security contest where computer scientists and industry experts explore security vulnerabilities in system-on-a-chip (SoC) designs. Intel, in collaboration with the Technical University of Darmstadt and Texas AMU, developed an open-source SoC for the competition, replicating real-world scenarios for security engineers.
The event has evolved into a first-of-its-kind competition and franchise, drawing massive interest. Join us annually at renowned security and systems venues like USENIX Security and DAC.
