Welcome on the homepage of the chair "Internet Technologies and Systems" of Prof. Dr. Christoph Meinel and his team. We like to inform you about our teaching and ongoing research activities in security, knowledge engineering, innovation and design thinking research.
The chair of Prof. Dr. Christoph Meinel offers courses in the following disciplines: Internet and Web Technologies, (Discrete) Mathematics and Logic, IT Security and Internet Security, Complexity Theory and Information Security as well as Design Thinking.
In Security and Trust Engineering our research and development work is mainly focused on: Network & Internet Security, Cloud and SOA-Security (SOA - Service Oriented Architectures) and Security Awareness.
The research of the team of Prof. Dr. Christoph Meinel in the field of knowledge management and engineering focus on the challenging question, how to manage the mass of digital data, so-called "big data", from Internet and other sources in order to generate new knowledge.

Software Security Surveillance
The research project „Software Security Surveillance“ is part of the research in security monitoring and intrusion detection of the chair of Prof. Dr. Chirstoph Meinel. The goal is the development of high quality surveillance and correlation algorithms to improve the security of the SAP software NetWeaver by analyzing log events.
Within this project, the SAP NetWeaver suite will be analyzed in terms of logging capabilities and attack scenarios. A mapping between possible log events and attack scenarios will be designed and powerful correlation algorithms will be developed. The quality of these algorithms will be analyzed based on experiments with real attacks on SAP software systems. Log recommendations will be used to improve the quality of the correlation algorithms.
The developed algorithms will be implemented using HANA, an in-memory database technology developed by SAP. The final evaluation of the results will be done with the implemented prototypes in real attack scenarios.
Security Analytics Lab
The Real-time Event Analysis and Monitoring System (REAMS) is a platform to gather, manage, show, and analyze information about massive security related events. The REAMS supports multi-core architectures and in-memory databases. It provides multiple correlation modules and integrates many different data sources using the Common Event Expression (CEE). The REAMS is developed at HPI by Prof. Meinel and his team.
