The call for the Cyber Start-up Challenge started for the third time in succession in June 2022. The goal of the Challenge is to explore the start-up technology landscape in a specific subject area, in order to integrate innovative technologies into the armed forces. As part of the Cyber Start-up Challenge 2022, 36 start-ups from various different countries presented their innovative technologies in the area Network detection and security of IoT devices.

The start-up ONEKEY was able to convince the jury of cyber experts from the DDPS with its automated security analysis technology. Using the «Software Bill of Materials (SBOM)» and automatically generated «Digital Twins», ONEKEY checks for possible critical security vulnerabilities and compliance violations in the operational software.
