CIRCE Cybersecurity Laboratory

See organization →
CIRCE Cibersecurity Laboratory is a place of innovation and active research in continuous evolution that aims to cover all current aspects regarding cybersecurity in industry 4.0 and particularly in electrical networks. The laboratory has specific hardware for the application of cybersecurity techniques (pentesting, vulnerability analysis, identification, ...) in controlled contexts. Among this hardware is a DELL R740 server for running virtualized environments; Synology NAS for storage of analysis, results and images; SIEMENS industrial switch; Three-phase analyzer, and PFC200 Controller to emulate components of the electrical power system. On the other hand, it also has elements for the study of wireless systems, IoT sensors and industrial embedded. These elements are, among others, dedicated 4x4 Wi-Fi 6 access point; RF and Bluetooth sniffers, and proprietary embedded systems (Energybox). Finally, the laboratory has a server equipped with NVIDIA Quadro RTX 5000 GPU for the application of advanced analysis and machine learning techniques in cybersecurity environments such as the development of intrusion detection systems.
