Welcome to CAP.

Welcome to CAP. 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 vulnerabilities in embedded systems, specifically IoT devices. We also develop countermeasures to secure them against sensitive data extraction, disruption, diversion, and obfuscation.
