Cyber Security in the Age of Large-Scale Adversaries
"CASA - Cyber Security in the Age of Large-Scale Adversaries" pursues the goal of enabling sustainable security against large-scale adversaries, in particular nation-state attackers.
The research is characterized by a strongly interdisciplinary approach which, in addition to technical questions, also investigates the interaction of human behavior and IT security.
The scientific core of CASA is formed by four Research Hubs. The Future Cryptography Hub investigates crucial foundational problems and the Embedded Security Hub addresses platform security challenges in the context of powerful attackers. The Secure Systems Hub will provide solutions for building complex systems in a secure fashion. Finally, the research in the Usability Hub will address the challenge of making the research in the three technical hubs usable for humans.
The Transfer Lab will investigate the integration of the security solutions from the Research Hubs into real-world applications in a truly meaningful manner.
