Security & Privacy Engineering

Motivation: The digitalization of society and industry is largely software-defined, which shows the pivotal role of algorithms in order to guarantee security & privacy.

Research focus (technical): The design and analysis of

  1. Secure & Private Algorithms: Algorithms that, next to their functional requirements, additionally fulfill specific security and/or privacy requirements. This involves security & privacy attacker modelling and proving that algorithms satisfy these models.
  2. Algorithms for Security & Privacy: Algorithms that are used to increase the security and/or privacy levels in application-specific contexts. This involves research on scalability and efficiency of algorithms as well as experimentation-based evaluation.

Approach: Scientific Engineering (from real-world problem -> fundamental research challence -> scientific solution -> real-world deployment)

Application domain: Current and Future Critical Infrastructures; mostly: financial, health, cyber/internet, smart cities, and Blockchain
