Semiconductors are crucial in a huge amount of sectors such as communication, information technology, health care, transportation, energy and infrastructure. The importance of semiconductor was also pointed out by the European Commission in the Annual Union Work Program from 2022. However, securing the tiny, intricate semiconductor chips, essential to many electronic systems, can be challenging. The increasing complexity involved in the development, integration, and post-deployment use of microelectronics presents new security risks and vulnerabilities. Consequentially, users of electronic devices but also manufacturers pursue secure and reliable chips. This workshop targets exactly this, standards for certifications of chips in terms of security, authenticity, reliability.

The main aim of this project is to develop a roadmap which provides a clear terminology, overview of the current situation in semiconductor standardization, identifying gaps and needs in standardization, proposing further steps and activities and a preparation of revisions of European standardization deliverables which support the European Union legislation and policies.
