The “Conference on Cryptographic Hardware and Embedded Systems (CHES)” is the world's largest and one of the most important international hardware security conferences and will be held again this year from September 18-21, 2022 – for the first time since the Corona pandemic – in presence in Leuven, Belgium. 

CASA Principal Investigator Amir Moradi is contributing to a total of eight accepted papers that will be presented during CHES. This means that the new appointed Professor of Implementation Security at Ruhr-Universität Bochum (RUB) since August 2022 can again show a very successful participation in the conference. The focus of the accepted contributions is on design and analysis of hardware implementation of cryptographic primitives protected against implementation attacks. Just last year, Amir Moradi had set a special record in the history of CHES: He was involved in ten of the papers accepted there.

In total, 11 of the 83 papers accepted at CHES 2022 are co-authored by researchers at the Horst Görtz Institute for IT Security and the Cluster of Excellence CASA.

The conference is organized by the “International Association for Cryptologic Research” (IACR) and addresses not only researchers but also participants from industry and government. It is a forum for professional exchange on new methods for secure and efficient hardware implementations and high-speed or leakage-resistant software for embedded systems. CHES was founded in 1999 by CASA spokesman Christof Paar at Worcester Polytechnic Institute in Massachusetts.

The following papers with HGI/CASA participation are accepted at this year's CHES:
