Protection from Scalable Attacks

“In our projects we combine domain knowledge with our expertise in the areas of embedded and security engineering to prevent external attacks. Our participation in the IT Security Techniques and Mechanisms group (DIN NIA 01-27-02 AK) allows us to actively advance the field of security.”

Achieve Protection Goals

The importance of security dramatically increases with the opening of systems to the outside. Whether it‘s in a vehicle or medical device, application protection goals – such as confidentiality, integrity, and authenticity – must be achieved. This is the only way to ensure that hackers’ attacks are unsuccessful and create no security breaches that may affect the safety of your product.

The Best Defense is a Good Offense

Only those who know where potential threats originate can really protect themselves. That is why we are working hard internally at ITK, and within committees, on potential attack scenarios in order to develop appropriate safeguards for function encryption. Protect yourself and your development from external attacks with our expert guidance on the choice and use of cryptographic algorithms.

At All Levels

A successfully executed, scalable attack would have disastrous consequences. Security is important for all levels and stages of development – from the basics of cryptography to implementation, testing, and field observation. In addition to security management according to ISO 27001, side-channel detection in embedded systems is a high priority for us to ensure a secure development.
