Silicon Salon Overview
The Blockchain Commons presentation as usual led off the day.
Silicon & MPC. An overview of silicon architecture approaches to addressing concerns of security, performance and efficiency, economic concerns, and flexibility to accommodate future improvements. Also, a discussion of some facets of MPC-based distributed key management that receive little academic attention but are important in a practical context.
Bunnie Studios Presentation
Toward a More Open Secure Element Chip. What are the elements that make a semiconductor more or less “open”? How do you maintain openness in a proprietary ecosystem, and is there a purpose to secrecy in security?
Kavya Sreedhar Presentation
A Fast Large-Integer Extended GCD Algorithm and Hardware Design for Verifiable Delay Functions and Modular Inversion. Developing a large-integer extended GCD (XGCD) algorithm and hardware design. It uses carry-save arithmetic and conducts a design space exploration to develop an accelerator that supports fast average and constant-time evaluation.
