Infrastructure Protection Security Research Team

The IoT society is becoming reality, where users' quality of life depends on things that are connected to networks. The trend is further boosted by the recent momentum of digital transformation. Our safety and security are threatened both by "invisible" (cyber) things and by "visible" (physical) things. The Infrastructure Protection Security Research Team of the Cyber Physical Security Research Center is engaged in research for security measures for cyber and physical threats, and for the development of secure infrastructure.
