More Security for Automotive IT

Increasing connectivity in automotive IT poses new vulnerabilities. Fraunhofer SIT has developed a software platform where secure control units can be developed based on a TPM 2.0.

 

MORE INFORMATION

Errors and vulnerabilities in software cause damage running into billions, can ruin a company's reputation and, in the worst case, endanger the safety of people. That's why the Fraunhofer SIT developed VUSC – the code scanner. VUSC (for VUlnerability SCanner) helps companies and developers to detect vulnerabilities in code within minutes.

Encryption for everyone

End-to-end encryption ensures that only sender and recipient are able to read messages in plain text. Fraunhofer SIT’s Volksverschlüsselung simplifies the distribution of cryptographic codes in such a way that even a layman is able to manage it easily.

JAB-Code becomes ISO standard

JAB-Code becomes ISO standard

JAB-Code, the color barcode of the Fraunhofer SIT, is on the way to becoming an international ISO standard. JAB-Code – Just Another Barcode – is to be brought to a full ISO standard by 2022. It uses color as a third dimension and can therefore store more information in the same space. The color code does not have to use database references and links, it simply stores the information itself.

More Security for IoT

More Security for IoT

For devices in the Internet of Things, identities and their integrity are of central importance: Industrie 4.0, Smart Home or Smart Traffic only work if each machine, each piece of hardware, each device has its own non-clonable identity, which also includes the integrity of the running firmware. To meet these challenges, Fraunhofer SIT uses the principle of Trusted Computing.
