Associate Professor, Computer Science and Electrical Engineering
Dr. Robucci’s research in security relates to hardware implementation. In one effort, his group is looking at experimentally analyzing and estimating information leakage in integrated circuits and FPGAs and how physical design choices can affect the vulnerability of a circuit. He is also investigating physically built-in protection against side-channel information leakage and unauthorized access. Recent exploration also includes protecting information in low-power mixed-mode (analog & digital) circuits as required for embedded sensor applications. Topics of interest include protection against side-channel attacks, Trojan circuits, and the use of physically-unclonable functions (PUFs).
