Welcome to the website of project SeCIF (Secured Communications for Industry of the Future). SeCIF is funded by the French-German Academy towards the Industry of the Future (or Industry 4.0). The Academy is promoted by the Institut Mines Telecom (IMT) on the french side and by TUM on the German side to foster new research and education platforms able to tackle the ICT-related challenges posed by the industry of the future. The SeCIF project itself features collaborative research by three research groups at TUM and two groups at EURECOM around efficient and secure communications with an emphasis on industrial IoT.
