In order to protect on line services form malicious attacks, access is only granted to users by solving a CAPTCHA (Completely Automated Public Turing Test to Tell Computers and Humans Apart) to distinguish a human user from a malicious software robot. This patented image-based.
CAPTCHA relies on the human ability to recognize shapes in a confused environment. It is user friendly and resilient to automated attacks. A good CAPTCHA must be user-friendly and at the same time offer resiliency against automated attacks.
This patented image-based CAPTCHA relies on user interaction because it depends on the innate human ability to recognize shapes in a confused environment. It was thoroughly tested to evaluate the two key aspects of a CAPTCHA: the usability, by carrying out a user study; the resiliency against traditional, specifically designed, and machine learning based automated attacks. The results is a user-friendly CAPTCHA resilient to automated attacks.

  • Countermeasure against relay attacks

    In the context of Vehicle To Grid, various cyber attacks can target electric vehicles as well as their charging station. The present invention solves the security problem related to the EVExchange attack and, in general, to all relay-type attacks: it[...]

  • Smart device security system

    Smart devices are an important part of today’s world, but their security is constantly threatened by a wide array of attacks. This invention uses FPGA (Field Programmable Gate Array) to implement a Remote Attestation as a low-cost, easy to implement[...]

  • A method for self-calibration of mmWave radar networks from moving target trajectories

    The proposed technique computes the roto-translation parameters of multiple mmWave radar devices respect to a reference coordinate system. The method calibrates radars in pairs and it is based on computing the optimal rigid transformation that matches the movement trajectories of[...]
