Our research addresses key technical aspects of information security and privacy - such as cryptography and system security and address broader human, economic and societal aspects of security, privacy, risk and trust. Also to develop security and privacy awareness and education approaches as well as usable security. To achieve these research goals the research group is very interdisciplinary, i.e. computer science, math, psychology, social science, and communication science.
In our current research, we focus on easy-to-use encryption tools for personal communication, designing and analyzing cryptographic primitives such as block and stream ciphers, public-key encryption schemes.
Security requirements come from people, individually or in wider society. And the effectiveness of security solutions often depends on the behaviour of people.
User-centered security is about researching the best possible trade-offs and means to achieve good security that users are willing and able to use properly.
To educate the public, governments, and companies about both the techniques used and the outcomes of using them, and to make sure people demand more security and privacy since they would be aware that more is possible.
Study a wide variety of topics, from designing cryptographic protocols to the evaluation of their effectiveness to enable secure communication, such as key agreement protocols, key distribution schemes, secret sharing schemes,
