Nanyang Technological University, Singapore (NTU Singapore) and FraunhoferGesellschaft (Fraunhofer), a renowned German institution for applied research, are launching a research institute to develop digital technologies to help companies move into the digital era and remain competitive.
At the Hannover Messe from April 24 to 28, 2017, Fraunhofer researchers will present two new procedures for the protection of Industrie 4.0 production facilities (Hall 2, Booth C16/C22): here, a self-learning system recognizes security incidents in manufacturing facilities without knowledge of the underlying system architecture. Hardware-based security modules report manipulation tests on machines and components.
The Fraunhofer Institute for Secure Information Technology SIT has identified serious security gaps in Android's password apps. In many of the most popular password managers, cybercriminals could easily gain access to protected information, for example, if the attacker is on the same network. The manufacturers were informed and have corrected the vulnerabilities. However, users should ensure that they are using the updated app version.
The Fraunhofer Institute for Secure Information Technology has discovered severe security vulnerabilities in security apps for Android. These vulnerabilities can be exploited to turn such apps into attack tools, taking control of smartphones and then extorting their owners financially. “According to our estimates, up to 675 million devices worldwide could be affected,” says Michael Waidner, director of Fraunhofer SIT.
Fraunhofer Institute for Secure Information Technology SIT presents CodeInspect at CeBIT, a new tool for analyzing Android apps. With CodeInspect, companies can track vulnerabilities and malware in the compiled program code very quickly; library developers can analyze their library to identify software defects. Fraunhofer SIT demonstrates the ready-to-use tool at CeBIT in Hanover from March 14 to 18 in hall 6 at stand B36. More information on the technology and product trials are available at https://codeinspect.de .

Israeli Ambassador Yakov Hadas-Handelsman visits Fraunhofer SIT in Darmstadt. German-Israeli research activities aim at improving security of the Internet, Critical Infrastructures, Cyberphysical Systems, Cloud Computing, Big Data and Business Software. Key Actors meet at Cybersecurity Innovation Workshop in Tel Aviv at the End of June.
