Secure Embedded Systems

SES Center for Embedded Systems
for Critical Applications

Our group works on design and implementation aspects of security in
embedded systems design. We work on secure protocols and
cryptography implemented in embedded hardware and software.
We develop appropriate countermeasures against implementation attacks.
Our team's expertise covers multiple abstraction levels, including circuits,
hardware micro-architecture, firmware, and platform-specific software.
We are also working on methodologies, with a focus on the trade-off
between system performance, system cost, and system security.
