KYBER LAB
Kyber Lab is the specialized Lab for the qualification of hardware and software components of critical systems, with  a special   focus on  security systems and in particular about IP video surveillance. 

When will the lab take place?
From December 2017 to March 2018,  workshop duration of  4 hours and in classes of up to 10 people..

Why this name?
Cyber or "Kyber" is the abbreviation of cybernetics  from the Greek word  κυβερνητικὴ (τέχνη) (art) to hold the helm of a ship.
The ancient Greek word kybernetes (κυβερνήτης) refers to  the pilot of a ship. The root “Kyber”  stands for "helm" and finds a parallel in the Latin guber, which we find in the gubernator, helmsman. Kyber and Guber make a clear reference to a common Indo-European progenitor who meant Helm. In both languages, the term also extends to a metaphorical meaning indicating the one who guides or governs a city or state: already in the Greek of Plato [11] it is attested, in this has a wider  meaning of  the Art of governing.

How Kyber Lab  is born?

Link Campus University and Bosch have begun the process of setting up a specialized lab for the qualification of critical hardware and software components, with a special focus on security systems and in particular on  IP surveillance.
The lab is located at Link Campus University in both seats of  Rome and Naples and  will also be open to  the contribution of other universities.

 

 ACTIVITIES

 Components certification

The main activities of the Laboratory are listed below:

  • Firmware
  • Chipset integrity
  • Cryptographic implementations
  • Analysis of hardware design information and data that can be derived from it:
    • device bootloaders
    • device firmware (operating system and app)
    • device factory software
    • factory tools such as flashing tools and test station software
    • analisi factory tools for access to backend database, permission systems, web services, circuits of debugging.
    • schemes, data sheet and other information hardware
    • device unlock (bootloader lock e subsidy lock)
  • Threat intelligence
  • Data leakage through attacks side channel.
  • HDL code review
  • Sistems Anti-cloning
    • Physically unclonable
    • Protections boot code
    • CRC checks

The lab will collaborate with prominent names in Italian cyber security and university researchers and students to train them  for immediate insertion  in business and institutions
