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.
