Security first is an especially important principle in times of digitalization. After all, digitalization measures need secure software. We show and teach you what constitutes effective software development and how to avoid pitfalls. Our Secure Engineering Lab is a learning facility, co-working space and demonstration area all in one. This is where we make companies aware of the security gaps in their systems and develop effective protective measures.
Innovative functions of intelligent products and services are increasingly based on software. At the same time, the ever-increasing degree of networking between systems places high demands on their security. In the industrial environment, the interplay between safety and security is also crucial. That’s why we use our safety and security by design method at an early stage of development - and implement effective safety principles in the right places. In this way, vulnerabilities are identified as early as the software development stage and, for example, the insecure use of cryptography and unintentional data leaks are avoided.
In the Secure Engineering Lab, we demonstrate efficient engineering of secure software-intensive systems along the entire product lifecycle and put it into practice. In doing so, we keep an eye on your overall system at all times, ensure the IT security of the product and embed it reliably in the development process.
With the services offered by our Secure Engineering Lab, we support companies from the fields of mechanical and plant engineering, automation, mobility and transportation (automotive) and smart living in successfully integrating effective solutions for safety and security into their processes, products and services. Information and communication technology companies and software providers benefit from our methodical approach to secure software development as well as our extensive experience in threat analysis and code analysis tools.
In the Secure Engineering Lab, we advise and support you from the requirements analysis and concept development stages right through to the implementation of contemporary and future-proof security solutions. Together, we look at both the efficiency of your IT security tools and the effectiveness of organizational measures for IT security, along the entire product lifecycle. In this way, you will learn about the latest methods and tools as well as best-practice examples, including code and threat analyses and model-based security.
In addition, the Secure Engineering Lab serves as a demonstration area for modern software development techniques, including those unrelated to IT security considerations. These include model-driven software development, agile methods, automated engineering infrastructures and DevOps, right through to the coupling of engineering tools.
