Research and other activities
Our work touches on several different topics, from software, through firmware down to hardware. We work on methods to help with the analysis and reverse engineering of software and firmware for the purpose of identifying bugs as well as analysing privacy implications. Furthermore, we are interested in Methods that can be used to extract information from hardware and allow deeper analysis. Analysing such systems provides deeper insights and helps with strengthening security and privacy for end users.
Apart from research activities, we are furthermore involved in teaching lectures at TU Wien and the University of Vienna and are active in CTFs.
Things we’d like to share
As we didn’t want to use Eclipse for Ghidra extension development and Eclipse sometimes didn’t work out of the box either as we wanted it to, this blog post covers some of the things we tried that might be obvious to others, but haven’t been previously documented as such.
