Embedded Security

Embedding computer systems in their physical environment is a crucial aspect of IT security.

The internationally renowned team at the HGI conducts research, for example, into preventing the manipulation of hardware or the reading of cryptographic keys from chip cards or smartphones. This work is equally concerned with ensuring that new applications of the technology are secure, such as in the fields of electromobility or in self-driving cars.
