Job Snapshot

Job Description

An IBM Research project is looking for a Trust, Assurance, & Protection expert to work on an end-to-end/cradle-to-grave semiconductor security assessment. The focus of this work will be to completely document the threat space, assess existing methods, identify gaps, and provide insight into a research and development agenda to provide a comprehensive & cohesive approach to the entire life-cycle threat space. The work must account for a comprehensive, impartial, and critical review of existing methods in order to determine the best path forward for adoption of those existing methods where appropriate. Similarly, using their expertise in design, fab, and the entire semiconductor supply chain help to devise new methods where exposed attack surfaces exist - with a particular focus on how all elements leading up to chip manufacturing (fab) and beyond can be secured.

The successful candidate will have extensive experience in considering the complete threat scape, and will be execution/demonstration focused. They will understand and ideally have experience in chip design, IP usage, development, and protection across the pre-fabrication, fabrication, and post-fabrication cycle. The candidate will also have experience relevant to evaluating the role of verification and validation from first wafer test through to system demonstration. A focus on the protection of software, hardware, and the interaction between the two will also be critical.

An engagement would be considered successful if at the end we had a comprehensive view of the attack surfaces, a plan to mitigate all of them, and demonstrations of key elements.
The candidate should have 20+ years of commercial R&D experience, as well as have worked within the context of Trust, Assurance, & Protection in either a government agency or executing government funded R&D in this space.
