Supported by the Israel National Cyber Bureau in the Prime Minister’s Office and the Technion, the Technion Cyber Security Research Center was inaugurated in April 2016 and aims to become a top leading cyber security research facility that will contribute greatly to the field.
Today, Israel and the Technion in particular are leaders in maintaining the country’s ability to withstand cyber threats. Yet to continue to do this we must promote interdisciplinary research that relies on the capabilities of the Technion.
At the center, faculty members from various faculties investigate the ‘lower layers of cyberspace.’ The study topics focus on security and explore the weaknesses that endanger systems and methods of protection. The center fosters awareness of these issues and holds seminars for engineers working in cyber security in order to broaden their knowledge and keep them abreast of the latest developments in the field. We invite industry collaboration and will be happy to host researchers and post-doctorate fellows from Israel and abroad.
The center focuses on cyber security research such as software and hardware protection, operating systems security, cloud security, protection of IoT (Internet of Things) systems, verification of software and hardware, computer vision, safety of autonomous systems, cryptology and cryptanalysis, safety and privacy of medical and aeronautical systems, and many others. The center manages research grants for researchers and graduate students (MSc and PhD), serves as a focal point for scholars, focuses on disseminating innovative knowledge through conferences and international workshops, and deepen awareness of the field via courses, lectures and other outreach activities.
