0 0 1,179

Hello again,


In this episode of Chips & Salsa, CRob and I talk to Intel's Dr. Matthew Areno and how supply chain risk continues to be a major concern for manufacturers and the organizations and customers serving them. But how can development teams identify risk in hardware compute to help mitigate vulnerabilities throughout the development lifecycle? In this video, learn four steps that can be used during the Build stage to reduce risk of attacks.

About our guest:

Dr. Matthew Areno is a Senior Principal Engineer at Intel Corporation in the Intel Product Assurance and Security (IPAS) group. Dr. Areno completed his Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees at Utah State University in 2007 and took a position with Sandia National Laboratories. At Sandia, he focused on vulnerability assessment and reverse engineering of embedded systems primarily utilizing ARM-core processors. During this time, he also completed his Ph.D. at the University of New Mexico with dissertation work on strengthening embedded system security through the use of PUF-enhanced cryptographic units. In 2013, Dr. Areno took a position with Raytheon Cyber Security Innovations in Austin, TX. He served as a Chief Architect for a number of anti-tamper solutions, with specific expertise in establishing trust in COTS equipment. He joined Intel in 2019 and is now the director of the Security Assurance and Cryptography group. Dr. Areno holds several patents and has numerous publications in the area of hardware security, system design, and PUF technologies.
