Experts in Embedded Security for the Realization of Your Vision

Embedded Security is Gaining Importance in Many Areas

With enthusiasm and many years of experience, we support you in the certification of various CPU systems and software components. So, among other things, we are also your reliable partner when it comes to implementing your ideas of embedded security in reality. An "embedded system" is understood to mean a self-contained, fixed-functionality information processing system embedded within a large program. In terms of IT security, this means that the specific function of the embedded program is to protect against all potential cyber attacks.

Embedded Security deals with the information security (IT security) of all interconnected or embedded systems. This is done by applying measures against unauthorized manipulation in the procurement, transmission, processing and storage of network information. As an IT expert, it is our job to set up your embedded systems and continuously develop them in terms of security for lasting protection. For while the specific function of embedded security is already known at the time of development and is programmed accordingly, the potential threat of an attack can change over the course of the system's operating time.

Due to the global networking of the digital world, useful value-added services and value-added potential are being created - for example in vehicle technology (autonomous driving), energy supply (smart grid systems), medical technology (telemedicine), office technology (interactive walls) and consumer electronics (smart TV).

At the same time, the increased connectivity also increases the likelihood of potential threats. To prevent this as much as possible, most programmable electronic devices are already factory-provided with an access protection function. In this case, this is referred to as "embedded security", with the access protection function performing the following tasks:

  • the protection of the system from possible cyber attacks
  • the protection of the environment and the system against possible damage resulting from the infringement or restriction of availability, integrity or the degree of confidentiality.

When it comes to programming and setting up such security systems, we are your competent partner. Through security measures, we not only keep the respective functions intact but also optimize them continuously.

This is necessary because reality shows us time and again that absolute protection does not exist. In order to minimize the residual risk that is always present in programs and networks, we offer you our first-class solutions. We regularly train engineers in embedded software development for embedded security and functional security, which allows us to bring countless experiences, knowledge and technologies from over 270 projects and research projects into your project.
