1Longterm-secure cryptographic methods and their application

We aim to develop new cryptographic methods (especially including blockchain approaches) that can convincingly be shown to be resistant to the threat of practical quantum computers and can be used as Privacy Enhancing Technologies (PETs).

2IOT Security Technologies

We will research novel system security concepts for IoT devices as well as for their corresponding cloud back-end environments in order to ensure authorization of and isolation between different parties.
We will consider physical as well as software sidechannel attacks and while maintaining simplicity in use even in heterogeneous environments.

  • Security Architectures
  • Security by Design
  • Cryptanalysis
  • Post-Quantam Cryptographic Schemes/ Cryptography
