The development of micro-computer processors and semiconductors over the past several decades has occurred with little attention to security. As a result, there is an immediate need to identify and address the security of nanoscale devices that perform vital functions in key areas such as national security, commerce, energy, and transportation. UConn’s Center for Hardware Assurance, Security, and Engineering (CHASE), a national leader in computer hardware security research, houses some of the most advanced equipment available for nanoscale device characterization and testing. CHASE is a premier center for security analysis, nanoelectronics, counterfeit device detection, cryptography, and cyberattack countermeasures.
