The IEEE International Symposium on Secure and Private Execution Environment Design (SEED) is a forum which brings together researchers from the computer architecture and computer security communities into one venue that focuses on the design of architectural and system primitives which provide secure and private execution environments for applications, containers, or virtual machines.

Submission Topics

SEED primarily focuses on research topics spanning across the boundaries of computer architecture, systems, and security. Papers are solicited on a range of topics, including (but not limited to):

- Architecture, operating systems, and programming models and language for supporting secure and private execution
- Novel Designs for secure and private execution environments for GPUs, accelerators, and FPGAs
- Architectural support for new security primitives
- Novel cryptographic hardware designs for secure and private execution
- Models and analysis of performance-security trade-offs in the design of a secure execution environment
- Evaluation of security vulnerabilities in post-Moore’s Law technologies, e.g. persistent memory, quantum computing
- Demonstration and mitigation of architectural side channels, covert channels and other security vulnerabilities
- Metrics for measuring architecture-related security vulnerabilities
- Compiler and code generation techniques for mitigating architecture-induced side and covert channels and other vulnerabilities
