Please join us in congratulating Professor Houman Homayoun and his collaborators at George Mason University for receiving the Best Paper Award at the 14th IEEE Dallas Circuits and Systems (DCAS 2020) Conference.

Their paper titled, "ExTru: A Lightweight, Fast, and Secure Expirable Trust for the Internet of Things” introduces ExTru, a novel encrypted communication protocol based on stream ciphers that adds a configurable switching & toggling network (CSTN ), to not only boost the performance of the communication in lightweight IoT devices, it also consumes far less energy compared with the conventional side-channel resistant ciphers.

The conference was co-sponsored by the IEEE Circuits and Systems (CAS) Society, the IEEE Solid-State Circuits Society, the IEEE Electron Devices Society and the University of Texas at Dallas.
