US-based Keysight Technologies has awarded a cash gift to The Cyber Academy research team for:
"Side Channel Data Analysis for the Testing and Evaluation of IoT Devices for Vulnerabilities"
The gift is defined through Keysight’s University Relations program and
supports a key objective of identifying the most promising technologies
in university research and encourage collaborative research in these
The internal review process for gifts is both rigorous and competitive, and reflects the high confidence that the work will have an excellent opportunity to produce high impact research.
The gift also comes with support from an Edinburgh-based team (led by Doug Carson), who are committing time to support the research work.
A previous project was funded by The Data Lab, Scotland, and produced a number of significant results, including using data science methods to crack an encryption key within 20 mins. The methods used large-scale data gathered from the power supply of a device.
