Secure Cyber-Physical Systems (SCy-Phy) Group

CISPA Helmholtz Center For Information Security

The SCy-Phy group at CISPA focuses on applied security research in the domain of cyber-physical systems: industrial control systems (ICS), embedded systems, and the Internet-of-Things (IoT). Current research highlights are results on low-level security of the Bluetooth protocol, adversarial learning attacks on Anomaly detection systems for ICS, and state-aware anomaly detection systems for ICS.
