As part of the *Eleanore Hale Wilson Lecture Series, ECE is proud to present:

Making Silicon Chips Secure Again Using Physical Unclonable Functions (PUFs)

Professor Chris Kim
University of Minnesota
Host: Professor Keshab Parhi



With the proliferation of smart connected devices such as smart phones, wearables, and internet-of-things, hardware security has become a growing concern. In this talk, I will introduce recent progress based on Physical Unclonable Function (PUF) circuits for combating unauthorized and malicious hardware access.


Chris H. Kim received his B.S. and M.S. degrees from Seoul National University and a Ph.D. degree from Purdue University. He has been an Electrical and Computer Engineering faculty member at the University of Minnesota since 2004. His research interests are in digital, mixed-signal, and memory IC circuit design.


*Established in 2009, the Eleanore Hale Wilson Fund supports engineering field leaders for travel to Minnesota to share their expertise and discoveries with University of Minnesota graduate students, faculty, and alumni. The fund also supports the receptions held in honor of each speaker.
