System security is a cornerstone of today’s digital world.
Our research centers around hardware security, secure system architectures, cryptographic implementations and side channels.
For example, we are analyzing and protecting of cryptographic implementations against power analysis and fault attacks.
This research has a long tradition at IAIK and we have a dedicated hardware research lab for conducting experiments in this context.
On the side of system architectures, we are focusing on extensions of RISC-V processors with respect to security.
We are working with small embedded processors as well as with Linux-based platforms.
Our goal is to rethink and to extend computer architectures and tools in order to create a strong security foundation for all types of computer systems.
Our team is interested in the security of systems from a low-level perspective.
We developed many of the state-of-the-art techniques, attacks, and defenses in this area.
