Welcome to CREAM.

Welcome to CREAM. Our mission is to provide the electronics industry and intelligence community with knowledge, methodology, solutions, and skilled cybersecurity engineers to help prevent penetration and manipulation of our nation's cyber physical infrastructures. We apply invasive and noninvasive hardware and software reverse engineering techniques to assess physical layer cybersecurity threats in embedded systems, specifically IoT devices. We develop countermeasures and trusted platform module design methodology to secure them against sensitive data extraction, disruption, diversion, and obfuscation.
