SysKit - Development tool for secure communication in Industry 4.0

01/01/2017 to 31/12/2019

The project implements a development tool called SysKit. With this tool, secure communication solutions tailored to specific Industry 4.0 applications can be designed and implemented very efficiently. Based on a library of communication modules and other secure hardware and software components, SysKit communication systems can be optimized and tested. There are various requirements such reliability, real-time behavior and energy consumption.

For the implementation of the communication solution, the project also researches and develops new secure and attack-resistant communication technologies. This includes the multi-antenna radio technology, with which signals can be sent bundled in the direction of the receiver. A hearing of the signals is thereby made much more difficult.

By dynamically changing the communication parameters, the system should also be robust to active signal interference. In addition to safety, energy efficiency is also crucial in Industry 4.0, as many of the components used there do not have a continuous power supply. For this purpose, the project aims to research and implement technologies of energy-saving lightweight cryptography.
