Today we find ourselves on the cusp of a revolution in computer hardware security. Semiconductor companies are creating chips as fast as possible to meet increasing global demand using development approaches that effectively address functionality but leave security out in the cold.

We will present this problem, and solutions, through stories and history. These stories incorporate humor, adventure, and survival in the midst of the war-torn wilderness known as: The Semiconductor Production Pipeline. Few have returned to tell the tale.

This talk, rescued, smuggled out from behind enemy lines, and authenticated by titans of industry, presents hardware security from a perspective rarely discussed in academic circles: deriving engineering requirements from customer security needs.
