The Institute of Reliable Embedded Systems and Communication Electronics (ivESK) at Offenburg University of Applied Sciences was established in 2015 after many years of intense and successful activities around platform development and protocol design for Cyber Physical Systems (CPS). It was founded by Prof. Dr. Axel Sikora and Prof. Dr. Dirk Westhoff, who have a long record in the design and analysis of secure and safe embedded systems – fostering open source solutions.

The ivESK is especially active in the following areas:

  • Conception and implementation of efficient and modular, wired and wireless communications protocols using embedded systems
    • e.g. with 6LoWPAN, Wireless M-Bus, M-Bus
  • Conception and implementation of integrated security architectures for communications solutions using embedded systems
    • e.g. embedded TLS1.2, PKI solutions for distributed applications
  • Conception and implementation of efficient and secure, embedded computing platforms
    • e.g. Embedded Linux (SpeedBoot, virtualization)
  • Testing and verification of communications solutions
    • e.g. with automated physical testbed (APTB)
    • e.g. with network simulation and emulation
  • End-to-end security solutions between resource-restricted devices and powerful components, and connection to a cloud ecosystem
