Cybersecurity - Security Engineering

Die moderne Gesellschaft ist in zunehmendem Maße auf die Sicherheit und Zuverlässigkeit von IT-Systemen und des Internets angewiesen. Die Verwundbarkeit unserer digitalen Welt wird durch Hackerangriffe auf Netze oder Datenbanken, Computerviren, Internetwürmer und Trojanerangriffe immer wieder schmerzlich bewiesen. Hinzu kommt: Je mehr sensible Daten wie Online-Bestellungen, medizinische Daten oder elektronisches Bargeld in offenen Netzen wie dem Internet übertragen werden, desto mehr Angriffsflächen gibt es für solche Angriffe. Daher muss der Schutz von Computern und Netzen eines der wichtigsten Ziele sein.

Im Forschungsbereich Security Engineering befassen wir uns daher mit Schutzmaßnahmen auf allen Ebenen: von den technischen Grundlagen über Angriffserkennung bis hin zur Sensibilisierung der Nutzer.
