Your car is not a safe box - breaking automotive keyless entry systems
Lecturer, University of Birmingham
About David Oswald
David Oswald is a lecturer at the University of Birmingham in the Security and Privacy Group. His main field of research is the security of embedded systems in the real world. On the one hand, the focus is on attack methods that exploit weaknesses in the physical implementation of mathematically secure cryptographic algorithms. Those techniques include both (passive) side-channel analysis and (active) fault injection. On the other hand, he is working on the practical realisation of security systems in embedded applications. He is a co-founder of the Kasper & Oswald GmbH, offering services for security engineering. His research on vulnerabilities of various wide-spread systems (e.g. automotive RKE systems, DESFire RFID smartcards, two-factor authentication tokens, and electronic locking systems) has created awareness for the crucial importance of security for embedded devices.
