DISC - Department of Complex Systems Engineering

  • SMARTIES Demonstration, a simulator for the study of avionics systems
    An avionics system cannot be summed up by one simple computer, but rather by a multitude of computer components that communicate with each other. SMARTIES propose a complete architecture to faithfully reproduce and test complex avionics systems in order to study certain properties (such as electricity consumption, fault tolerance, reliability, etc.).
    Room 07-046
  • TRUST: Tamper-proof Random nUmber Generator for SaTellite
    Generating random numbers is necessary for many applications, notably in security, to generate cryptographic keys or secure passwords, for example. Trust is a system for generating the random data used on nanosatellites. Using data from the sensors, the random data are generated and then signed before being sent to Earth in a format that ensures their authenticity and integrity. A proof-of-calculation mechanism has been added to check that the data do indeed come from valid cryptographic functions.
    Room 07-008
  • TOAD: ThreshOld Anonymous Decryption scheme (Blockchains)
    Beyond cryptocurrencies, blockchains are applications used in various kinds of critical distributed systems. In this demonstration, we will show how a blockchain can be used to distribute cryptographic keys between n people in such a way that an encrypted message can only be decrypted if at least k (<n) people in the group participate honestly in the decryption. We will demonstrate that at no time can a person with malicious intent access the deciphered the message on their own.
    Room 07-047
