iTrust is a multidisciplinary research centre located in the Singapore University of Technology and Design (SUTD), established collaboratively by SUTD and the Ministry of Defence, Singapore (MINDEF) in February 2013. The focus of iTrust is on cyber security, spanning across three research areas:
- Cyber Physical System (CPS), led by Professor Aditya P Mathur
- Enterprise Networking/Security, led by Professor David Yau
- Internet of Things (IoT), led by Professor Yuval Elovici
iTrust researchers focus on the development of advanced tools and methodologies to ensure security and safety of current and future cyber physical systems. Systems of interest include large infrastructure of national importance (such as power grid, water treatment, oil refineries) as well as cyber-devices such as smart watches, pacemakers, defibrillators, insulin pumps, and VNS implants.
iTrust researchers are drawn from across SUTD and with a strong collaboration with Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), enrich the depth, breadth, and quality of research. Academic collaborators include MIT, Imperial College, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC)/Advanced Digital Sciences Center (ADSC) and Nanyang Technological University, Singapore (NTU).
