AFRL's Trusted Systems Branch offers research opportunities in the area of computer hardware security.  This area of research encompasses the design, development and demonstration of foundations for secure information systems, including technology, components and methods supporting a wide range of requirements for improving the security of computing systems via multiple trust anchors. Such technologies should exhibit security, dependability, confidentiality and manageability.  One particular area of interest is creating new logical microprocessor designs and utilizing conventional silicon integrated circuit foundries and industry standard design tools to demonstrate novel security enhancements.  Other areas of computational diversity and computer hardware research that show promise of improved security and roots of trust are also of interest.
