In areas such as medicine, modern automotive industry and flexible manufacturing  facilities, we use complex electronic systems  to make our lives and work more and more efficient and pleasant. Despite making our daily life easier, complex electronic systems bring potential dangers due to a lack of security and unwanted manipulation from outside. Therefore, from the beginning trustworthiness must be a central development goal for these systems from the beginning.


The goal of the VE-VIDES project is to develop a holistic security concept for electronic systems. Our goal is to guarantee  the security of the underlying intellectual property in the entire system. Furthermore, electronic components in the overall system should be protected against security risks from attacks and manipulations by third parties.


VE-VIDES is a BMBF-funded project with a duration of three years starting on March 1st, 2021. In this context, OFFIS cooperates with 11 other German partners. The development of observers and monitors, which OFFIS strongly promotes, enable the trustworthiness of the specific electronic components to be checked during operation. They measure and check specific parameters such as time, function and energy consumption of the individual components and provide information about any manipulation. Afterwards, the results will be tested using practical examples from industrial applications.
