Projects

Security Research Labs is a Berlin-based hacking research collective and consulting think tank.

We are seeking to drive security evolution, combining insights from research, industry, and the hacker community. We focus on everyday technologies that expose many people to risk, most recently mobile communication and payment systems. Our goal is to fix issues before consumers are put at risk; or publicly discuss flaws in systems where this did not happen. Our lab is an open collective of like-minded thinkers. If you are interested in our projects and the lab, get in touch or consider working with us.
