SGS and TU Graz open Lamarr Security Research
SGS and TU Graz open Lamarr Security Research
SGS and TU Graz announce the opening of Lamarr Security Research, a non-profit research center focusing on information security and establishing trust in digital systems and products. This new research environment is open for partner sponsors to work together, and to make the world a safer place. Cybersecurity is one of the biggest challenges for our information society and there is urgent need to fundamentally rethink the way systems are built, composed and analyzed.

PLATYPUS: New vulnerabilities discovered in Intel processors
PLATYPUS: New vulnerabilities discovered in Intel processors
An international team of security researchers from TU Graz, CISPA and University of Birmingham is presenting new side-channel attacks, which use fluctuations in software power consumption to access sensitive data on Intel CPUs. Power side-channel attacks are attacks that exploit fluctuations in power consumption to extract sensitive data such as cryptographic keys.

Intelligent maintenance: improved maintenance management for track
Intelligent maintenance: improved maintenance management for track
TU Graz algorithm-based method provides a basis for decisions on the correct amount of tamping measures on tracks, thus reducing their life-cycle costs by up to 20 per cent. Train journeys should be safe and comfortable, and track systems are crucial to this. So-called "tamping" (positioning, compacting and stabilizing) of the ballast in the track bed is one of the most important maintenance tasks in the railway industry.
