Infineon Recognized for Security Innovation; Three Employees Nominated for Prestigious German IT-Security Award 2012
November 23, 2012
Infineon Technologies today announced that three of its employees – Dr. Berndt Gammel, Dr. Wieland Fischer and Dr. Stefan Mangard - have been nominated for the 4th German IT-Security-Award. The team was recognized for the submission "A Cryptographic Protocol Providing Inherent Protection Against Side-Channel Attacks," which is a method for protecting security microcontrollers from physical attacks.
This revolutionary new method for the protection against side-channel attacks offers the best known cost approach for this type of countermeasure now available. It provides sustainable security for a complete category of attacks. The countermeasure is the basis for the authentication technique and secured data transfer of CIPURSE™, an open standard for secure transport fare collection solutions defined by the OSPT Alliance.
There are ten nominations for the 2012 German IT-Security Award, and a final winner will be announced at a ceremony on Nov 29, 2012 in Darmstadt.
Presented every two years by the Horst Goertz Foundation, the German IT-Security Award recognizes contributions to the strengthening and the promotion of the position of it-security "Made in Germany."
