Secure communications

With the seamless integration of embedded devices into the global communication network infrastructure (the Internet of Things) and ultra-high speed mobile and wireless connectivity on the horizon, future communication systems need to incorporate novel protection mechanisms to ensure security, reliability, and adequate fault tolerance.

Establishing the foundations of secure communications is therefore a key area of work for SCCS. The Centre collaborates closely with experts in the University’s 5G Innovation Centre – the UK’s largest academic centre researching next generation mobile communications – to build secure and reliable communication systems. This is supporting applications in areas such as connected vehicles, where protecting safety of vehicles and people requires robust solutions to prevent potential cyber attacks, and digital health, where the handling of sensitive personal information requires carefully designed and implemented privacy protection mechanisms.
