Specialised Research at CBIS Labs

Under Research Group in CBIS Labs, there are several laboratories which deliver dedicated research services. Collectively the research group is known as "CBIS Labs". The CBIS Labs comprises Cryptographic Test Lab (CTL), Mobile Research Lab (MRL) and 0-Day Lab (ZDL).

Cryptographic Test Lab (CTL)

Cryptography is a highly specialized domain area and the ability to test and verify cryptographic implementations usually go beyond most companies, sometimes, even the product developers.

Here in CBIS Labs, we have extensive experience in Cryptography Testing. With more than 10 years of such testing experiences, CBIS Labs' Cryptographic Test Lab (CTL) is able to conduct specialized cryptographic tests using proprietary toolkits and verify cryptographic algorithms implementations.

CTL is also able to provide consultancy services for customers who may like to engage experts' advice on use of cryptographic mechanisms and validation testing of the implementation of cryptographic functions and mechanisms.

CTL's capabilities cover symmetric algorithms, asymmetric algorithms, hash, HMAC, random number generators, and cryptographic protocols.

Mobile Research Lab (MRL)

CBIS Labs has started a Mobile Research Lab (MRL) to focus research in mobile platforms and understand the trends and vulnerabilities on Mobile platforms. MRL also conducts research for customers interested in specific areas within mobile platforms.

MRL also conducts specific research to look into secure deployments of mobile platforms.

0-Day Lab (ZDL)

A zero-day attack or threat is a computer threat that tries to exploit computer application vulnerabilities that are unknown to others or undisclosed to the software developer. The term derives from the age of the exploit. A "zero day" attack occurs on or before the first or "zeroth" day of developer awareness, meaning the developer has not had any opportunity to distribute a security fix to users of the software.

Malware writers are able to exploit zero-day vulnerabilities through several different attack vectors. The sharp increase in 0-day attacks in this growing connected world has been reported. CBIS Labs has a 0-Day Lab (or Zero Day Lab) which focuses research in finding 0-days vulnerabilities as well as malware research to ensure CBIS Labs is up to date to the attackers' capabiilities and in turn assists our customers in protecting their interests.
