This chapter is devoted to the quantum isometry group of the finite geometry of the Connes-Chamseddine picture of the Standard Model. We begin with some generalities on real \(C^*\) algebras, followed by a brief discussion in the finite noncommutative space of the Connes-Chamseddine model. Then we compute the quantum isometry group of the corresponding spectral triple and also discuss some physical significance of our results.
