asvin Lab

working on the future of cybersecurity

At the intersection of AI, IoT and DLT, we are working
towards a new holistic cybersecurity paradigm.
Geared towards becoming the Moody’s of Trust our research bridges technology, business models and creative thinking.


What is so special about the lab is the creative
variety of output: white papers, graphics and video,
course material, code and programs, business models

Fueling Innovation Through Research Projects

At asvin labs, research projects serve as the cornerstone of our continuous evolution, enabling us to nurture creativity and expand our problem-solving prowess. For asvin, every successful project is a catalyst for further product development. – Let´s have a look at some current projects.

ReSiLENT

Creating a resilient charging infrastructure for cost-effective operation with cybersecurity over the lifecycle is crucial.
We are developing a novel approach that allows cybersecurity information to be rolled out across a networked charging infrastructure.

  • Design a ecosystem to reliably secure the charging infrastructure.

  • Make integration of cybersecurity applications into the charging infrastructure simpler

Developer in charge:

Project duration:
1. June 2023 – 31. May. 2026

The project is funded by Bundesministerium für Wirtschaft und Klimaschutz (BMWK) and Deutsches Zentrum für Luft- und Raumfahrt (DLR)

EcoMobility

EcoMobility will support European industry and cities in the transition from isolated and static transport modes to a service-oriented, connected mobility ecosystem by sharing data and services between stakeholders.

EcoMobility will create and demonstrate an adaptive data-driven development, deployment and operation framework for connected / electric vehicles to enable a digital mobility ecosystem.

Developer in charge:

Project duration:
1. June 2023 – 31. May. 2026

The proposal was submitted under BMBF, VDI/VDE.

AutoDevSafeOps

Vehicle digitization is a key driver of innovation in Germany and offers significant economic benefits. The MANNHEIM-AutoDevSafeOps research consortium aims to explore safe, modular updates to vehicle systems.

Provide models, tools and processes for continuous development of safety-critical automotive software quickly, reliably and with certifiability in mind.

Developer in charge:
Karsten Klöss

Project duration:
1. Okt. 2022 – 30. Sept. 2025

Funding within the framework of the BMBF funding announcement “Electronics and Software Development Methods for
Digitalization of Automobility (MANNHEIM)” Focus C “Methods and Tools for software development in automotive systems of systems”.

DOSS

DOSS elaborates a secure-by-design methodology and implements related technology for complex IoT architectures, based on supply chain monitoring, component testing and architecture modelling.

https://dossproject.eu/

The project establishes a “Supply Trust Chain” with integrating key stages of the IoT supply chain into a digital communication loop to facilitate security related information exchange.

The technology includes security verification of all hardware and software components of the modelled architecture.

A “Device Security Passport” will be defined for 3rd party hardware and its components. 3rd party software,
open-source applications, as well as in-house developments will be tested and assessed.

DOSS  is a single entity project

Developer in charge:

Project duration:
1. Sept. 2023 – 31. May. 2026

Funding by European Commission

AntiDot

AntiDot focuses on the research and development of effective methods and online tools for securing and defending against data poisoning attacks on artificial intelligence (AI) applications

  • Automated configuration of security mechanisms for detection and defense against data poisoning attacks in machine learning using online data analysis.
    Prediction for quality impact in case of identified pollution and after performing cleanup in data by filtering operations.

  • Development SaaS to protect AI application from infiltration of data to manipulate the statements.

  • Methods for neutralizing attacks of compromised image data using superimposed noise patterns

AntiDot is a single entity project

Developer in charge:
Rohit Bohara

Project duration:

Datachainsec

DATACHAINSEC is to secure the entire data supply chain of an AI application. For this a solution is being developed and tested as a
demonstrator, which extends to the data protection over the entire
“data supply chain” in the food industry

https://datachainsec.org/ 

  • Secure data chains of AI applications
  • Secure configurations on IoT devices with limited ressources
  • Protect data through data acquisition to transport, storage and processing
  • Secure digital twins and their AI models
