Infrastructure at IIT Kharagpur in brief

Covered under one umbrella, the Central Research Facility is an integrated facility for all students at IIT Kharagpur to carry out their research activities centrally.

Broadly classified into two divisions, this facility has

  • Materials Science Division
  • Life Science Division

Each laboratory is under the supervision of a designated faculty member from the Institute and there are around 36 laboratories in the CRF complex

At different length scales (sub-nanometer to the millimetre), the equipment housed in these laboratories is used for various types of characterization including the study of the structure and chemical composition of surfaces and bulk materials phase transitions, as well as evaluation of mechanical, electrical, magnetic, and optical properties.

For the IoT paradigm, the laboratory on Security of IoT aims to design, evaluate, and deploy the essential communication and security mechanisms. The internet security protocol currently rests on a widely trusted set of cryptographic algorithms. But for the functioning of the application scenario, something which is not always available in the context of IoTs, a significant amount of resources such as processor speed and memory are expected.

By considering new hardware security primitives and to discover new verification techniques to evaluate security against powerful side channels, and provide much-needed trust to the users against powerful adversaries, researchers at the laboratory plan to undertake a fresh approach. The laboratory is collaborating with DRDO, CDAC-Bangalore, Wipro, ISEA, Masaryk University (Czech Republic).
