Title: WiSense Seminar #104, Considerations for creating secure links and cryptographic systems using a low cost single board computer, Peter Chapman
Location: uOttawa, SITE Building (800 King Edward) Room 5084
Description: The presentation will cover the vulnerabilities inherit in high level software in relation to privacy, security and dangers of fraud and the vulnerabilities due to software upgrades being obtained online. The challenges of securing high level software will be discussed. The security of current encryption algorithms, primarily AES and ECC will be presented together with a discussion of their implementation using low level assembler code. The ability to audit such implementation provides a degree of security over and above that offered in high level implementations. Finally a proposal to implement such algorithms in a very low cost ($25) single board computer, the “Raspberry Pi” will be presented.
Bio Notes: Peter Chapman is the founder of Haven, Hardware Antivirus Engineered Systems inc. The company is developing hardware in order to secure software driven equipment, including personal computers, phones and organizers, in order to make them invulnerable to malicious software. He is also carrying out research into the applicability of using small stand alone computer hardware to create safe cryptographic systems. His interests in cryptography have led him to investigate state of the art cryptographic methods, particularly in relation to secure authentication of sensors.
Prior to this founding Haven, Mr Chapman was a senior manager in the Chief Technology Officer’s department at Nortel, where he was researching next generation internet technologies involving secure wired and wireless networks.
Mr Chapman has been a technology development manager, Product Line Manager, and Business Unit Manager over more than forty years in the telecommunications, aerospace, television technology and semiconductor industries. He is a Chartered Electrical Engineer, and holds a B.Sc.Eng from Imperial College, London
