EU - SAFEST - Secure and Assured hardware: Facilitating ESTonia’s digital society

Project: Research project

Project Details

Description

The overall aim of SAFEST is to enhance the scientific and technological capacity of Tallinn University of Technology (TUT)
in the field of Hardware Security, to be achieved through networking activities with its internationally-leading Twinning
partner. To achieve its overall aim, the 3 year project will build upon the existing strong competences of TUT in closely-related fields, to be complemented by the specific know-how of the Twinning partners. TUT will also make use of best practices learned from its previous Twinning experience as an enabler to the success of this project.
To boost their scientific excellence and innovation capacity, the partners will implement a networking strategy focused on
four complementary subtopics:
- Test for security
- Reverse engineering and defences
- Side channel attacks
- Hardware-software architectural vulnerabilities
The networking strategy takes into account the SWOT analysis of TUT and has the following objectives:
Objective 1: Strengthen the research capability of TUT and its Twinning partners in the area of Hardware Security
Objective 2: Promote TUT's competitiveness through sustainable participation in collaborative research efforts
Objective 3: Raise the research profile of TUT and the Twinning partners
Objective 4: Contribute to the safety aspects of e-Estonia
In order to realize these objectives, the partners will implement a comprehensive set of measures via the following work
packages (WPs):
- Short term staff exchanges (WP1)
- Short term exchanges of early stage researchers (WP2)
- Organization of workshops and summer schools (WP3)
- Dissemination and outreach (WP4)
- Project management (WP5)
