PHYSEC is a German deep-tech company and inventor of the Anti Tamper Radio (ATR), which helps OEMs & Utilities in implementing cyber physical system security for OT and IoT.

About us

PHYSEC GmbH is a Deep-Tech company from Germany, that specializes in IT security in the Internet of Things (IoT). Our major business area is the economically efficient and secure digitalization of infrastructures in the energy and water sectors. PHYSEC offers innovative, post-quantum resistant and particularly easy to integrate and operate safety concepts with the special feature of being able to digitally verify physical data. We do not only offer our customers state-of-the-art transmission technologies, but we also provide solutions for their secure use in regulated areas. With PHYSEC, unlike the widespread standard solutions, compliance with the relevant industry standards as well as the specifications according to the GDPR, the BSI and ENISA is not a problem. This makes us a trusted partner for municipal utilities when it comes to the secure digitalization of supply networks.

Products & Services

In the future, society will have to rely more and more on electronic components in everyday life, such as in self-driving cars or service robots. It is therefore extremely important to secure the software and physical properties of the tools and devices that we rely on in our daily lives. That is why electronics must be secure and reliable.

PHYSEC IoTree and PHYSEC SEAL as a feature activate the full potential of sensors and actuators digitalization, such as control and monitoring of distributed assets (in semi-trusted environments) and collecting additional consumption data, as well as providing easy access to deployment and operational status. By combining our IoTree platform with PHYSEC SEAL, our partners gain access to an infrastructure that monitors cyberattacks and physical changes on their assets.
IoTree Platform

IoTree is PHYSEC's secure IoT platform that serves as an interface (Connect & Protect middleware) between the physical and digital worlds in the Internet of Things. Furthermore, PHYSEC IoTree enables secure connection of IoT hardware and use of IoT applications. In our security concept, IoTree positions itself as the central IoT security hub, it provides encrypted data transmission in the Internet of Things and follows the principle of "security by design".

PHYSEC SEAL protects electronic components from inside the enclosure. It can detect the smallest mechanical changes and is used in physical integrity assessment. It is designed for use in public and easily accessible environments. Metering devices and cable distribution cabinets can be protected, as well as local network stations, pumping stations and entire substations.

PHYSEC is a winner of the TeleTrust Innovation Award 2022!
PHYSEC's award-winning solution "SEAL" solves fundamental, structural problems in the Internet of Things.

The solution enables the assessment of the cyber-physical properties of a product and its environment by creating an ecosystem for the operation of trusted electronics.

For this purpose, a chip with a low-cost, low-power miniature anti-tamper radio (RADAR) system is used.

The annual TeleTrusT Innovation Award is presented to companies or institutions that have developed an innovative, trustworthy and practical IT security solution. Further reading
PHYSEC GmbH, GELSENWASSER AG and Kamstrup developed digital water meter with LoRaWAN communication technology!
Metering data relevant to billing is personal data as defined by the GDPR, which requires special protection. Furthermore, special security regulations apply in the area of critical infrastructures, that among other things prescribe end-to-end encryption of the data transmission.

BSI prefers the TLS encryption protocol for this purpose. Standard LoRaWAN cannot meet these high requirements. For this reason, PHYSEC's IoT security experts, together with the well-known manufacturer of water meters Kamstrup and Gelsenwasser AG, have developed a concept that enables BSI-compliant connection of water meters, even in the CRITIS area.

The holistic secure concept also includes PHYSEC's secure IoT platform "IoTree", which gives utilities full control over their own data. Further reading
