 +======An FPGA-based Reliability and Security Engine for Protecting Critical Power Infrastructure ======

 +The widespread availability of low-cost, general-purpose computing has
 +led to increased automation and communication within critical
 +infrastructure such as the electrical power grid.  Introducing computing
 +hardware into the systems that perform the work of maintaining critical
 +infrastructure presents many new questions about assuring security
 +against malicious attackers and saboteurs. Current computing platforms
 +support secure computing mainly through software techniques that are
 +typically slow performing. ​ The Reliability and Security Engine (RSE)
 +and Trusted Computing Base framework introduce low-overhead,​
 +hardware-based security checking support that can be retrofitted to
 +existing architectures using field-programmable gate array technology
 +In this talk I will present a case study on the application of the
 +Trusted Computing Base and RSE to protecting the electric power grid
 +infrastructure. ​ An auto-reclosing synchrophasor relay was instrumented
 +and protected with the Trusted Computing Base FPGA-hardware while
 +utilizing typical electrical utility substation hardware, showcasing the
 +flexibility of the technique for application in realistic scenarios.
 +Peter F. Klemperer is a first year PhD student at Carnegie Mellon (ECE),
 +advised by James C. Hoe.  He completed his Masters Degree in Electrical
 +and Computer Engineering at the University of Illinois at
 +Urbana-Champaign in 2008.  His research interests include reliable and
 +secure computing in both critical and consumer applications. ​
