Smart City Testbed

The concept of a “Smart City” is an emerging topic of research that is driven by the need to enhance the quality of life of the ever-growing number of inhabitants in urban areas. As world urbanization continually grows and the world’s population is expected to increase significantly by 2050, smart cities offer an attractive solution that can contribute in economic growth, increased efficiency of energy and transportation systems and promote sustainable development.

The hardware security and trust area has experienced major growth over the last decade. A multitude of approaches and methodologies have been developed by researchers in academia and industry for evaluating hardware security and trust, but the effectiveness of these methods is not universally accepted and they maybe applicable to some designs, some platforms, some technologies but not to others.  For the following reasons, the need to develop effective trust benchmark circuits, tools and hardware platforms is felt by the community. Our goal in developing trust-HUB is to provide the community with a forum to exchange ideas, circuits, platforms, tools, and resources.
