Cyber and Information Security

Cyber security is the basic prerequisite for digitalization. Whether it is in automotive, production, critical infrastructure or digital services, confidence in the safety of new technologies is indispensable.

The modern world relies heavily on intelligent, networked applications and devices. Some well-known application domains are the Internet of Things (IoT), Industrie 4.0 or the automotive market, which all make use of new technologies to enable new applications and business models. In each domain, the increased usage of connected intelligent devices and services increases the attack surface and thus, also the need for appropriate security measures increases to protect sensitive data as well as to ensure the safety of human life.

However, existing security solutions often offer insufficient protection or otherwise do not meet the requirements of an application or service. Therefore, it is important to develop a deep understanding of the context in which the security services and cryptographic implementations are used and to combine this with the knowledge about relevant algorithms, protocols and countermeasures.

Resilient Cyber-Physical Systems and Secure Infrastructures

We explore new ways of collaborative and multilateral defense mechansims, security immune systems and threat intelligence for more robust and resilient cyber-physical infrastructures.

Security and Trust in the Industrial Internet of Things and I4.0

We investigate and establish means for security and trust in the industrial internet of things and Industrie 4.0.

Cryptographic Building Blocks and Applications

Our research addresses design, implementation and application of robust and efficient cryptographic building blocks tailored to complex scenarios and requirements in the automotive, transportation, and industral domain. 

Fraunhofer Group "Cyber and Information Security" in Singapore is investigating cyber and information security and the design of robust and more resilient systems and services used. In the context of the current cyber landscape, we explore and extend state-of-the-art advanced methods and technologies. Our research covers cyber-physcial system security, trust and trustworthiness in the industrial internet of things, and cryptographic enginnering. We are researching on resilience that enables to respond appropriately and distribute and escalate measures to detect, protect and respond to large scale attacks and sophisticated adversaries.

Fraunhofer Singapore offers specifically services and solutions for:

  • Security analyses and technical consulation in the area of Automotive and Transportation, Smart Grid, Industrial IT, Industrie 4.0
  • Security- and Resiliency-by-Design for Embedded Systems and hyperconnected IoT
  • Efficient and robust security buidling blocks and cryptographic modules
  • Procedures for long-term security, resiliency and crypto agility
  • Procedures for secure remote software updates and remote maintenance
  • Integration of hardware security modules and trust anchors into industrial and IoT architectures
  • Design and development of secure and trustworthy computing platforms
  • Design and development of hardware and software based attestation protocols
  • Policy enforcement architectures for Digital/Industrial Rights Management
  • Analysis of security aspects regarding their compliance with regulatory requirements
  • Artifical Intelligence (Edge-AI) and Deep Learning for Collaborative Threat Intelligence and Anomaly Detection Mechanisms

With our research activities we establish local R&D collaborations with partners from industry, and governmental, and thus, serves as a local partner for research, development and innovation in applied cyber security, protection and defense.
