In the hyper-connected world of the Internet of Things (IoT) there is significant security risk from loss of sensitive information on sensors and devices. Furthermore, with increasing communication channels there is an increased attack surface, so we are researching security protocol vulnerabilities and side channel attack and countermeasures. Research and innovation is also directed into Device Authentication, novel biometrics for access control, multi-factor authentication, hardware Trojan detection/prevention, novel approaches to mobile malware, secure virtualisation environments for Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) and robust Physical Unclonable Function (PUF) designs.
