Morgan State University has been selected to join a team of seven academic institutions that will work together on a national research project to increase the security and privacy of high-tech products used in smart homes.
Center for Reverse Engineering and Assured Microelectronics (CREAM) and CAP – Morgan State University. CREAM – Securing the Nation’s Cyber Physical Infrastructure. The Center for Reverse Engineering and Assured Microelectronics’s 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.
CREAM applies invasive and noninvasive hardware and software reverse engineering techniques to assess physical layer cybersecurity threats in embedded systems, specifically IoT devices. CREAM also develops countermeasures to secure them against sensitive data extraction, disruption, diversion, and obfuscation.
