The computer engineering group has a focus of research and education on design, structure and test of digital hardware. This covers not only processors and memory units, but also interconnects and sensor units. Processors, memory blocks and software together make "embedded systems". Making the smart cores of large-scale technical systems, they govern functionality, quality and reliability of systems such as cars, trains, airplanes, and manufacturing plants. Therefore there is a special challenge to make embedded electronic systems fit for long-term dependable operation over years up to decades, often under serious constraints in power consumption.

It all started in 2009 when Dr. Stephen Oh founded the company eWBM based in South Korea. Stephen has had the vision to create a new market with innovative technologies to secure the world of information technology with the help of hardware-based security solutions. Stephen and his team of engineers developed their own customized security microcontrollers (processor chips) for use in FIDO security keys and IoT products. Shortly after they developed their own biometric security key, they recognized the acute demand for security solutions in a world that was moving towards the Internet at an incredible pace. As a result of this, eWBM decided to spin off the FIDO2 Security Keys team into a new company with a team of executives focused exclusively on providing the world with advanced FIDO2 security solutions. TrustKey Solutions was born! As a technology partner of TrustKey Solutions, we together with Stephen and his team are constantly pushing the limits of architectural security by bridging the gaps in today’s Industry 4.0 solutions through innovation of security by design, thinking outside the box and by bringing new ideas to the table of standardization bodies such as FIDO IoT Technical Working Group, where we participate in the definition of security-relevant standards.
