Congratulations to our student 'Ivy Interrupter' for winning this year's practical hacking course Seclab (Praktikum IT-Sicherheit).
Daniel also successfully defended his PhD thesis 'Towards Efficient and Explainable Detection of Mobile Malware with Machine Learning'. Congratulations Dr. Arp aka Dr. Drebin!
Our security lecture has received the LehrLeo award for the best lecture at the university! Even better, our hacking lab has also received a LehrLeo award for the best practical course. More information are available here.
Hugo successfully defended his PhD thesis 'Defending against Targeted Attacks with Pattern Recognition'. Congratulations Dr. Gascon!
Woah! Our students Lukas Pirch and Jonas Möller won the German InformatiCup 2019, out of 30 teams. The task was to evade a machine-learning system. More details here
Congratulations to team 'Chaos Coders' for winning this year's Datalab (our practical course on machine learning in security).
Chris successfully defended his PhD thesis 'Efficient Machine Learning for Attack Detection'. Congratulations Dr. Wressnegger!
Our institute joins the consortium of the Berlin Big Data Center 2. Together with the other partners, we will explore methods for protecting the security and privacy of big data systems.
We are attending the 21st Symposium on Research in Attacks, Intrusions and Defenses (RAID) in Heraklion, Crete. Hugo is presenting our paper on detecting spear-phishing attacks in emails.
We are very happy to report that Dr. Fabian Yamaguchi has received the CAST/GI Award IT-Security for his PhD thesis on pattern-based vulnerability discovery. Details are available here.
We are excited to announce the launch of the new Institute of System Security. Starting with this semester, the research group of Prof. Dr. Konrad Rieck will conduct research and teaching on computer securtiy in Braunschweig. Stay tuned.
We are offering the following courses in this semester at TU Braunschweig: Machine Learning for Computer Security (lecture) and Verdeckte Kommunikation mit Ultraschall (SEP). More details are available here.
We are happy that over 100 students have registered for our lecture Introduction to Computer Security in this semester. We are also offering two new seminars: Vulnerability Analysis and Discovery and Privacy Enhancing Technologies.
We are attending the 36th IEEE Symposium on Security and Privacy in San Jose, California. Fabian presents our paper on inferring search patterns for taint-style vulnerabilities in source code.
Our group is running two new projects: The research project ABBO deals with the detection of organized fraud in e-commerce and the project APT-Sweeper aims at detecting targeted attacks in email and web communication.
We have started the research project INDI. The project is concerned with detecting unknown and novel attacks in industrial networks (e.g. in power plants). It is funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research with 1.6 Mio. Euro.
The winter term finally started! We are offering the following courses: Introduction to Computer Security (lecture) and Intrusion and Malware Detection (seminar).
We are happy to report that Prof. Rieck is a recipient of this year's Google Faculty Research Awards! Google is supporting our research on modeling and finding vulnerabilities in binary code graph with a gift of $83,000.
We are running a new research project: DEVIL. The project is concerned with discovering vulnerabilities in source code using machine learning and funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG) for a period of two years.
We are happy to attend the 17th NDSS in San Diego, where we present our paper on effectively detecting Android malware on smartphones.
