Together with support from the Japanese internet visionary, mentor, and entrepreneur Dr. Hiroshi Fujiwara and the Israel National Cyber Bureau in the Prime Minister’s Office, the Technion Hiroshi Fujiwara Cyber Security Research Center opened in April 2016. It has quickly been recognized as one of the leading cyber security research facilities in the world.
The Research Center brings together faculty member from various different institutions to research discover weaknesses that endanger computerized systems and propose methods of protection.
These faulty members then hold seminars and workshops to bring the engineers that work in the cyber security industry up to date on the latest information. Together they devise solutions and come up with new technology to fix these weaknesses and prevent future cyber attacks.
The Research Center collaborates with professionals and routinely hosts researchers and post-doctorate fellows from Israel and abroad.
The research and development at the Technion 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
- Security of autonomous systems
- Cryptology and cryptanalysis
- Aeronautical systems
- and much more.
The center manages research grants for researchers and graduate students (MSc and Ph.D.), serves as a focal point for scholars, focuses on disseminating innovative knowledge through conferences and international workshops, and deepens awareness of the field via courses, lectures, and other outreach activities.
