On March 13, 2017 we welcomed the president of parliament of North Rhine-Westphalia, Carina Goedecke, in the KAOS headquarters. Together with the delegates (from left to right) René Schneider, Serdar Yueksel, and Alexander Vogt from Bochum she was briefed with respect to the current state of IT security in the embedded domain and further was introduced to the latest KAOS offspring Mila. Thanks a lot for the kind visit, it was a pleasure for us! You can find Mrs. Goedeckes report about the meeting here (in German).
We proudly congratulate our team member Endres Puschner on winning the first prize award of CAST IT-Security 2016 with his Bachelor’s thesis Practical Man-In-The-Middle Attacks on Passive Car Entry Systems, which was supervised by Kasper&Oswald GmbH: https://www.cast-forum.de/presse/cast.html
In his thesis, Mr. Puschner realized a cost-efficient demonstrator for relay (Man-In-The-Middle) attacks and successfully opened and started modern cars of different well-known manufacturers. Amazing work Endres, Thanks a ton!
