The APISEC project is a collaboration of the DistriNet Research Group and Tsundoku Ventures, funded by the VLAIO Collective Research & Development and Collective Knowledge Dissemination / Transfer (COOCK) program. COOCK projects focus on a group of companies, with the aim of valorising (basic) research results by accelerating the introduction of technology and/or knowledge.
DistriNet is a KU Leuven research group embedded in the Department of Computer Science, and is part of the imec-KU Leuven Security and Privacy Center. The scope of DistriNet’s research is twofold: ICT security with an emphasis on secure software, secure systems, and software engineering for security, and distributed systems. DistriNet’s knowledge and expertise in these domains resulted in a strong international position in the domains of secure software, systems and services, and in security & privacy engineering.
Tsundoku Venture's goal is to empower people throughout their entrepreneurial venture by connecting them with information, expertise and opportunity. With 30 years of experience in the field of cybersecurity and a large network of fintech companies, Tsundoko Ventures helps companies that are participating in the project to explore business opportunities related to API security.
