The ASSET (Automated Systems SEcuriTy) Research Group at the Singapore University of Technology and Design does focused
research to enhance the safety, security and efficiency of Hardware/Software Systems.
We are always looking for researchers at all levels (Bachelor, Masters, PhD) to enrich the scientific activities in the group. For Post-doc positions, take a look at the individual research projects for opening. If you wish to join our group, contact Sudipta Chattopadhyay email: email@example.com directly with your CV.
NEW: 12 new CVEs assigned to show how to cause havoc in wireless systems (currently undisclosed for confidentiality). The vulnerabilities affect millions of wireless products being used. If you are in a "smart" nation, then you are almost certainly at risk (we are currently in the 90-day responsible disclosure window). Watch this space on 9th February, 2020 when we disclose the exploits and the details.

Well done and congratulations Yee Ching!! We are proud to have you here.
Chundong Wang from our group will join
as a tenure-track Assistant Professor at the
ShanghaiTech University from early 2020.
Chundong was one of the first members to join our group and he has made extremely valuable
contributions to the ASSET group research. While we will certainly miss Chundong, at the same
time, we are extremely proud of his achievements and will look forward to his research
as he moves on to the next level of his career.
NEW: Detailed descriptions of the CVEs discovered through our work on over-the-air fuzzing released now. Please check them out here (News coverage: Packt, Hacker News, HackaDay, medium): CVE-2019-12586, CVE-2019-12587 and CVE-2019-12588. Follow the discussions at Hacker News or HackaDay and use the proof-of-concept code from here to have fun.
Quoting a user from Hacker News: "It [ESP8266] is a Wi-Fi enabled microcontroller locally designed and produced
in china with a "100 million units sold" target. It is widely used by the makers community and by many new
"smart" products. I would say that this has a really large scale impact and a lot of people will need to
update the firmware".
