Professor Dr. Frank Kargl, University of Twente, The Netherlands Friday, November 12th, 11.00 am, Room 2010


Prof. Dr. Frank Kargl (University of Twente, NL)

Abstract (in german) Der Vortrag befasst sich mit Sicherheits- und Privacy-Fragestellungen dynamischer und kooperativer Systeme und illustriert dies exemplarisch am Beispiel von Fahrzeug-Fahrzeug Netzwerken. Es werden besonderen Anforderungen an derartige Systeme vorgestellt und Ergebnisse zu Privacy-Schutz und skalierbarer sicherer Kommunikation vorgestellt. Ausgehend von einer Analyse noch offener Herausforderungen wird Dr. Kargl einen Ausblick auf das neue EU FP7 Projekt PRESERVE geben, welches in den kommenden Jahren eine integrierte Sicherheitslösung für Fahrzeug-Fahrzeug-Kommunikation entwickeln will. Vita

Prof. Frank Kargl is Associate Professor at the Distributed and Embedded Security Research Group at University of Twente in the Netherlands. My research focus is on security and privacy in mobile systems and wireless networks, especially focusing on Intelligent Transport Systems and Inter-Vehicle Networks.

Before moving to University of Twente, I worked as a Senior Researcher ("Privatdozent") at the Institute of Media Informatics at Ulm University. In 2009, I finished my habilitation. At Ulm University, I established a local research group being involved in various research projects like SeVeCom and Preciosa. Besides my research activities I also taught courses on "Mobile and Ubiquitous Computing", "Web Engineering", and "Security in IT Systems".

In 1997, I graduated in computer science at Ulm University, from where I also received my doctoral degree in 2003 with highest honor ("summa cum laude"). My thesis was about "Security in Ad hoc Networks". It was suggested for the annual dissertation award of the "Gesellschaft für Informatik e.V." (German Computer Society) and received the dissertation awards of both the University Society at Ulm and the Südwestmetall Association.
