Matthias Kern (M.Sc.)

Research Scientist


Matthias Kern is a trained mechatronics technician and studied electrical engineering and information technology at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) with a focus on systems engineering. He already wrote his master's thesis at the FZI. Since February 2016 he has been working as a research assistant at the FZI in the ESS research area. His research topic is the model-based design support of security-by-design for Industry 4.0. To this end, he researches methods to be able to comprehensibly describe design decisions with regard to cybersecurity in the concept phase. In the European ITEA 3 research project ASSUME he was able to gather international research experience. In the BMBF-funded DEFEnD research project, he is researching how security-by-design can be implemented in the automotive sector, taking into account current standards such as ISO / SAE 21434. To demonstrate and evaluate his methods, he is working on a software demonstrator that is programmed in Java based on the Eclipse Modeling Framework (EMF) and other plug-ins. There are numerous topics related to this software demonstrator for academic theses, internships and jobs for student assistants. Supervising student work is important to him in order to give students an insight into current research.
