Welcome to System Security Lab

Modern cryptography offers fundamental building blocks and useful tools to protect information and data. However, it is not sufficient when it comes to platform and endpoint security. As soon as a platform is compromised, e.g., by malicious code, all cryptographic secrets are accessible to the adversary. This is where System Security comes in, that focuses on the security of computer and network systems as a whole, offers security by design or finds vulnerabilities and mitigations thereof.

We develop security architectures and trustworthy infrastructures, and cover cyber physical security in hardware and software, in particular for embedded systems, RFID and Sensor Systems as well as Smartphones. Moreover, we conduct research in cloud computing and applied cryptography.
