|since 2015||PHYSEC GmbH, Co-Founder & CEO|
Prof. Zenger co-founded PHYSEC in 2015 based on the work from his PhD. PHYSEC offers an innovative solution to secure the Internet of Things. The technology uses an Anti Tamper Radio (ATR) in combination with cryptographic protocols to prove physical statements remotely without requiring classical tamper-resistant hardware and cryptographic keys. With PHYSEC technology the authenticity, integrity and/or physical condition of almost any object can be verified. The solution by hand was awarded several times, e.g, by MIT, BMWi, and ECSO.

In addition to teaching and researching future wireless systems, nuclear disarmament, and IoT- and hardware security (with a maximum focus on deep-tech practicality), I am fascinated by the challenge of knowledge transfer through industry collaborations and the founding of start-ups.
My start-up background in combination with my professorship enable me to pass on my experience to interested students according to the motto "support and challenge", to continuously optimize an intrinsic start-up mindset in the university ecosystem and to develop sustainable perspectives.
