Introductie / missie

The interconnectivity and pervasiveness of computers and embedded systems is not only determining new functionalities, but is also opening the way to increasingly sophisticated attacks. In recent years the field of security has become a key focus of computer science research around the globe. The mission of the Security group (SEC), which is part of EPSI, the Eindhoven Institute for the Protection of Systems and Information, is to realize a more secure and privacy-preserving digital infrastructure. We believe this goal can only be achieved by investigating the overall cybersecurity problem, tackling the engineering, deployment, management, and maintenance perspectives of systems and ICT infrastructures. Our research interests are a reflection of this and span from security deployment and management, to physical security and attack engineering.

Highlighted phrase

The SEC group takes a multi-faceted approach to the full systems security process in order to counter today’s security challenges.

Over de organisatie

Cybersecurity challenges are innumerable: from advanced and nation-state malware, evolving evasive attack techniques, to the new frontiers of IoT security, access control, and physical security. In reaction to this, SEC’s approach to system security covers offensive and defensive aspects of system security, targeting concrete security problems and addressing the underlying, fundamental issues. SEC’s strength lies in its ability to empirically and theoretically understand the full security process: from attack generation and system management, to policy specification and user aspects.

Research in the Security (SEC) group spans three areas vital to the security of decentralized and embedded systems:

  • Security policy specification & enforcement
  • Security of embedded systems
  • Threat intelligence and defense

SEC sits at the intersection of these areas, addressing challenging operative and theoretical problems: for example, by monitoring underground activities and studying the techno-economic principles driving attack production, SEC maintains a unique perspective on the offensive side of computer security. This understanding is channeled into novel approaches such as new monitoring techniques to detect attacks targeting IT and IoT systems and new adaptive security and authentication mechanisms. SEC has made significant contributions to secure key storage in embedded systems by devising algorithms for randomness extraction from Physical Unclonable Functions (PUFs). Furthermore, SEC pioneered Quantum Readout of PUFs, an object authentication technology that is immune to spoofing.
