Protecting Hardware & Software From Threats 

The cybersecurity platform is staffed by more than 100 experts in protecting integrated circuits, mobile electronic devices like smartphones, and embedded systems and their software from threats. The platform is used to identify product vulnerabilities and come up with innovative ways to protect both hardware and software from cyber-attacks.

The platform uses some of the most advanced tools available (source-code analysis software like Frama-C, hardware platform simulators, test benches capable of replicating physical attacks against electronic components, fault generators, and emission spectrum analyzers) to pinpoint vulnerabilities. It is home to one of France’s three official commercial hardware security evaluation centers (ITSEF).

The techniques employed to ensure hardware and software security are based on innovative technologies like secure communications platforms for sensor networks, secure hardware and software cryptography implementation, crypto calculation for direct application processing of encrypted data, and more.

No other cybersecurity center in Europe is as large or covers as broad a scope as the platform. The platform’s partners include some 30 manufacturing and other industrial companies, as well as research organizations in Europe and the United States.
