Hardware Security

Hardware security research focuses on identifying and mitigating vulnerabilities in computer hardware. Hardware is the foundation of any computing system. As our dependence on technology continues to grow, ensuring that the devices we use are secure and resistant to attacks is becoming increasingly important.

Hardware security concerns many aspects, from identifying vulnerabilities in computer chips and processors to developing secure encryption algorithms that protect sensitive data.

Hardware security is essential for ensuring the stability of our digital infrastructure.

Our research team is internationally active in hardware security research, including various industry collaborations, such as the world’s largest industry-academic hardware security competition HACK@EVENT. Further, we received the prestigious European Research Council (ERC) Advanced Grant for building a new generation of secure hardware.
