This collaboration aims to make Singapore’s national hardware security evaluation and certification eco-system future-ready.

The state-of-the-art facilities that will serve as a “one-stop centre” for the product research, testing, and security evaluation of hardware devices.

It will carry out focused research and development in product evaluation, and support a Community of Practice for the Testing, Inspection and Certification sector.

Located on the NTU Smart Campus, NiCE was officially launched by Minister for Communications and Information and Minister-in-charge of Smart Nation and Cybersecurity, Mrs Josephine Teo.

NiCE supports the national push towards greater security evaluation by providing an all-in-one platform for manufacturers and developers to test and certify their products.
