  • Internet transaction security ZTIC. A banking server's display on your key chain
    More and more attacks to online banking applications target the user's home PC, changing what is displayed to the user, while logging and altering key strokes.
    In order to foil these threats, IBM has introduced the Zone Trusted Information Channel (ZTIC), a hardware device that can counter these attacks in an easy-to-use way. The ZTIC is a USB-attached device containing a display and minimal I/O capabilities that runs the full TLS/SSL protocol, thus entirely bypassing the PC's software for all security functionality.

  • Mote Runner infrastructure platform for wireless sensor networks
    The Mote Runner on-mote run-time platform is based on a virtual machine tailored from scratch for resource-constraint hardware environments. For this, it introduces a new byte-code language that, besides being compact and efficient, provides native support for reactive programming by means of delegates. Together with the run-time library built on top, Mote Runner provides a purely event-driven and thread-free programming model.
