Jakub Breier


My name is Jakub Breier. I am a researcher and evaluator, working in the field of computer security. More specifically, I am interested in hardware security, cryptography, and machine learning security.

Currently, I am working at TTControl GmbH in Vienna, Austria, focusing on securing automotive electronic control units (ECUs). Before that, I worked at Silicon Austria Labs in Graz, Austria, HP-NTU Digital Manufacturing Corporate Lab in Singapore, Underwriters Laboratories (Identity Management and Security department) in Singapore, and Temasek Laboratories at Nanyang Technological University in Singapore. I am a Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP) and Certified Automotive Cybersecurity Professional (CACSP).

I am passionate about any kind of security-related research and I have been publishing works in various areas, such as side-channel and fault attacks, countermeasures for cryptographic implementations, symmetric cipher designs, risk management, organizational security evaluation, adversarial learning, automotive security, etc. For these purposes, I also like developing software and building hardware evaluation benches.


May 3, 2024 I will serve on the PC at The International Symposium on Cyber Security, Cryptology and Machine Learning CSCML 2024.
Dec 20, 2023 I will serve on the PC in the Hardware and System Security track at ISLPED 2024.
