ECE Assistant Professor Qi Zhu Earns Best Paper Award at 53rd Annual Design Automation Conference

Electrical and computer engineering professor Qi Zhu and his team accept TODAES Best Paper Award

A paper by electrical and computer engineering assistant professor Qi Zhu, his graduate student Bowen Zheng, and two UC Berkeley researchers received the 2016 ACM Transactions on Design Automation of Electronic Systems (TODAES) Best Paper Award. The paper, titled “Security-Aware Design Methodology and Optimization for Automotive Systems,” was recognized during the 53rd Design Automation Conference (DAC) in Austin, Texas.
The paper addresses both security and safety requirements and solves security-aware design problems for the controller area network (CAN) protocol and time division multiple access (TDMA)-based protocols. To provide insights and guidelines for other similar security problems with limited resources and strict timing constraints, researchers proposed a general security-aware design methodology to address security with other design constraints in a holistic framework and optimize design objectives. The security-aware design methodology is further applied to solve a security-aware design problem for vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) communications with dedicated short-range communication (DSRC) technology. Experimental results demonstrate the effectiveness of the approach in system design without violating design constraints and indicate that it is necessary to consider security together with other metrics during design stages.
