Honda invests in car key security research
New key systems allows car owners to enter and start their vehicle without ever touching a key. But the technology is not entirely safe. That is why two ICT experts from the Interdisciplinary Centre for Security, Reliability and Trust (SnT) at the University of Luxembourg partnered up with Honda R&D Europe to address security vulnerabilities. Prof. Thomas Engel and Dr Florian Adamsky signed a 30.000 euro grant agreement with the automotive giant in the Spring of 2017 to collaborate on secure key systems.

Better bacteria-busting techniques could make oil extraction greener and cheaper
Simple tweaks to oilfield practice could provide the offshore industry with a more sustainable, money-saving solution to health and safety, environmental and commercial threats posed by harmful bacteria in subsea oil deposits. Easy-to-implement, cost-cutting measures - such as adjusting the water temperature used during oil production -- could offer a way of tackling problems linked to sulphate-reducing bacteria (SRB) that is greener and more effective than those currently relied on. SRB 'breathe' sulphates but exhale toxic, corrosive hydrogen sulphide (H2S).
