The origins of PHYSEC lie at Horst Görtz Insti­tu­te for it-secu­ri­ty (HGI) in Bochum. The rese­arch fin­dings of Dr. Chris­ti­an Zen­ger at the chair for embed­ded secu­ri­ty of Prof. Dr. Chris­tof Paar gene­ra­ted the back­ground for the deve­lop­ment of our secu­ri­ty solu­ti­ons.

Through the uni­que com­bi­na­ti­on of app­lied cryp­to­gra­phy and telecom­mu­ni­ca­ti­on engi­nee­ring PHYSEC offers inno­va­ti­ve secu­ri­ty solu­ti­ons for IoT app­li­ca­ti­ons based on latest rese­arch fin­dings. Com­pa­red to con­ven­tio­nal cryp­to­gra­phy PHYSEC rep­res­ents a fun­da­men­tal dif­fe­ren­tia­ble it-secu­ri­ty-para­digm that reaches secu­ri­ty goals through the mea­su­rement of cha­rac­te­ris­tics of the elec­tro­ma­gne­tic radio chan­nel and the use of the phy­si­cal con­di­ti­on and envi­ron­ment of a device. With our inno­va­ti­ve secu­ri­ty and con­nec­tivi­ty con­cepts, we faci­li­ta­te the imple­men­ta­ti­on of digi­tal busi­ness models with super­la­tively it-secu­ri­ty and at the same time ele­men­ta­ry app­li­ca­ti­on. By doing so, we ensu­re our custo­mers’ digi­tal self-deter­mi­na­ti­on.

For our solu­ti­ons and busi­ness model PHYSEC GmbH has been awar­ded several times. To ensu­re our tech­no­lo­gi­cal and sci­en­ti­fic lead, PHYSEC is invol­ved in inter­na­tio­nal rese­arch pro­jec­ts tog­e­ther with Prince­ton Uni­ver­si­ty, Har­vard Uni­ver­si­ty, and Ruhr-Uni­ver­si­ty Bochum and – on a natio­nal level – with Free Uni­ver­si­ty Ber­lin and Tech­ni­cal Uni­ver­si­ty Ber­lin.
