The Android galaxy is plagued with a host of fake apps solely devised to rob smartphone users of their ID, their data or their money. Studying this type of infection vector, a group of French scientists is coming up with a string of innovative test and visualization tools meant to help security analysts investigate suspicious software, explore its inner-structure, force sleeping code out of dormancy and produce an intuitive graph representation of what the malware is really up to.

In an automated factory, each equipment or machinery must meet a myriad of constraints. Ensuring that an entire factory chain satisfies these constraints and safety and security regulations requires simulation, test and verification. However, what can be proved when two heterogeneous components, e.g. mechanics and software, interact with each other? How can one prove that this hybrid aggregate also meets common, global, requirements such as, e.g. latency? Such is the question at the crux of a collaboration between Inria and Mitsubishi Electric R&D Centre Europe, two entities located on the same campus, in Rennes, Brittany, France.

Rémi Gribonval, Inria researcher and head of PANAMA project-team, has just received EURASIP Fellow 2018. A prestigious distinction that awards his work in the field of signal processing.
With the advance of robotics, a variety of service bots will soon be trundling and treading the public spaces among people going about their daily occupations. Making navigation through human tides safe and smooth is the purpose of Crowdbot, a European consortium led by Inria and funded by the EU ICT H2020 program. As project coordinator Julien Pettré points out, this research places a strong emphasis on ethics.
Academic research has led to the development of many first-rate software applications for genome data processing. Enancio, a new start-up established out of the Inria Rennes – Bretagne Atlantique research centre, is preparing to roll out a platform to facilitate the use and joint development of these applications. The service was created for hospital researchers and practitioners, particularly to help diagnose cancer.
Are the apricots ripe? Are insects threatening the squash? Have all the cows had their share of fodder? All questions that require the farmer or rancher to make rounds. The fruit of research into robotic vision at the Inria Rennes – Bretagne Atlantique centre, one startup, Dilepix, is getting ready to offer an online image analysis service to automate monitoring and help save valuable time.
A security research team based at Inria center, in Rennes, Brittany, France, Tamis recently partnered with American networking hardware giant Cisco Systems in a move meant to design an innovative method for uncovering malware at code execution.
Created at Inria research center in Rennes, Brittany, France, SPADE is a tool meant to restore distorted audio recordings. Expressing declipping as an inverse problem and leveraging sparse regularization in the time-frequency domain, its novel algorithm significantly improves the state of the art in the field, as scientist Rémi Gribonval explains.
Anti-intrusion probes help oversee security for cloud computing. For these tools to functions properly, they must be carefully adapted to the services that are hosted. The operation remains manual. Problem: virtual machines reassemble themselves continually on the servers. It is thus difficult for the operators to continually implement the necessary modifications. Hence the need to automate the process. This is the purpose of SAIDS, a tool developed by the Myriads research team at the Inria Rennes – Bretagne Atlantique centre.
Professor at the Rennes School of Business, Carole Bonanni devotes a course to managing new technologies. To give her students the opportunity to confront more realistic situations, she now has them work on software from new research at Inria’s Rennes centre.
