In November 2015, Embedded Concierge was selected for the final round of Start Secure 2015. The international jury of security experts rated our approach under the five best out of 25 applicants. Throughout the contest and also during the award ceremonies we received valuable feed-back and acknowlegements for the developed solution.
Yes, we are an awarded start up project, but we build on expert knowledge and practical experience in all required fields to protect complex IT systems! Two companies (Yagoba, xFace) build up the team behind Embedded Concierge. Although being a small team, we accumulated more than 60 years of experience in development towards secure embedded systems. Yagoba is the specialist for programming of secure elements and xFace has vast experience in embedded system design. All executive members in the team are graduates from IAIK, Graz University of Technology, one of the biggest and best known IT security teams in academia.
We are based in Graz, Austria, an innovative region that has high impact on the global Smart Card industry.
The Austrian Funding Agency FFG supports our activities towards secure Embedded Systems under the Project EUREKA - SRFMS. Together with our Project Partners Key-ID and TEMSA we develop a Fleet Management System for Busses, where we use adapted Embedded-Concierge components and methods to secure the communication channel between cloud-services and vehicles.
