EMPROOF - Security Solutions for Embedded Systems

01/01/2017 to 31/12/2019

The goal of the project is to research and develop a workable solution for protecting the intellectual property of software in embedded systems. The project team develops novel obfuscation mechanisms that can both guarantee the required level of protection and be applied to limited resources. The mechanisms are implemented directly on the microcontrollers, thus avoiding costs for integration or additional hardware.

 A demonstrator integrating the mechanisms allows any software to be protected by transformation. Extensive tests and evaluations in the industrial environment ensure the functionality and practicality of the solution. It is intended to position a university spin-off on the market based on the results of the project.
