Thomas Feller sheds some light on trust anchor architectures for trustworthy reconfigurable systems. He is presenting novel concepts enhancing the security capabilities of reconfigurable hardware. Almost invisible to the user, many computer systems are embedded into everyday artifacts, such as cars, ATMs, and pacemakers. The significant growth of this market segment within the recent years enforced a rethinking with respect to the security properties and the trustworthiness of these systems. The trustworthiness of a system in general equates to the integrity of its system components. Hardware-based trust anchors provide measures to compare the system configuration to reference measurements. Reconfigurable architectures represent a special case in this regard, as in addition to the software implementation, the underlying hardware architecture may be exchanged, even during runtime.

Opening with a detailed review of existing techniques for selective encryption, this text then examines algorithms that combine both encryption and compression. The book also presents a selection of specific examples of the design and implementation of secure embedded multimedia systems. Features: reviews the historical developments and latest techniques in multimedia compression and encryption; discusses an approach to reduce the computational cost of multimedia encryption, while preserving the properties of compressed video; introduces a polymorphic wavelet architecture that can make dynamic resource allocation decisions according to the application requirements; proposes a light-weight multimedia encryption strategy based on a modified discrete wavelet transform; describes a reconfigurable hardware implementation of a chaotic filter bank scheme with enhanced security features; presents an encryption scheme for image and video data based on chaotic arithmetic coding.
Describes R&D activities in advanced networking, software, high-end computing and computational science, cyber security, and other leading-edge information technologies (IT) funded by the 13 Fed. Agencies in the Networking and IT R&D (NITRD) Program. Capabilities and tools generated through NITRD investments accelerate advances across the spectrum of science, engineering, and technology fields, supporting key national security and scientific missions of the Fed. Gov¿t. and enhancing the Nation's economic competitiveness. The Pres.¿s FY2009 Budget provides a 6% increase for the NITRD Program overall, reflecting the vital contributions of networking and IT to sustaining U.S. leadership in science and technology.
