Knowledge exchange with the State Criminal Police Office of North Rhine-Westphalia in Düsseldorf
Back in March this year, an initial knowledge exchange took place between the teams from Airbus Protect and the State Criminal Police Office of North Rhine-Westphalia (LKA NRW), with both being members of the German Federal Association for Information Technology and Telecommunications, Bitkom. At that time, the LKA NRW visited Airbus Protect at the Taufkirchen site near Munich.
Recently delegates for Airbus Protect visited the LKA NRW in Düsseldorf, following LKA NRW’s initial visit to Airbus Protect.
This gave the Incident Responders and SOC Analysts of both teams the opportunity to network once again and exchange ideas about possible collaborations. For Airbus Protect, SOC Analysts Simon Witzgall and Thomas Murschall, as well as Markus Neumaier and Philipp Barthel from the Incident Response Team, were on site.
This time, the central topic was the approaches of the LKA NRW in unmasking hackers.
During a presentation, the Airbus Protect Team gained important insights into the working methods of the authorities, in particular information required for a successful prosecution. Since our Incident Response Team provides the customer with a corresponding report after each incident, which also includes a section with information relevant for law enforcement, these insights were particularly informative for our team.
There was also a focus on the work of the LKA NRW on [...]

New technologies for maintenance

I then went to an engineering school in electronics and embedded systems. I did a work-study program with Renault in the Paris area. Following this experience, […]
Think twice before implementing encryption
As we’ve seen before[*], encryption is a protection means rather than a security objective. Strong of that knowledge, we have clearly defined who should have access to our data, and who should not. Is encryption a good solution, then? Security attributes are often summed in three, sometimes four, basic properties that we may need to […]
Security of sensor fusion systems: Mission statement
Systems have been using sensors for a long time, to gain an understanding of their environment. More recently, the advent of autonomous systems, and the increasing demands of reliability, have led to the multiplication of sensor inputs. So we now commonly have systems that estimate their location using a mix of GPS, odometry, LIDAR, cameras, […]
