The research vision of the Security and Privacy Group at COMSYS is the analysis, design, and evaluation of secure and privacy-preserving communication systems.
To realize this vision, we most notably craft novel security and privacy architectures, paradigms, and mechanisms as well as improve upon existing approaches to security and privacy. We consider all types of systems and networks, e.g. ranging from highly resource-constrained IoT networks to distributed (peer-to-peer) applications and networks and large-scale Cloud deployments.
Our used and developed technologies range from soft privacy solutions such as semantic annotations and behavioral nudges to applied cryptography for strong and provable security and privacy guarantees.
The close cooperation with the other research groups at COMSYS allows us to work closely with domain experts from various types of communication systems.
Currently, we pursue this research vision by tackling the following research topics:
