The System Security Lab at the TU Darmstadt/CASED develops security architectures and trustworthy infrastructures, and covers cyber physical security in hardware and software, in particular for embedded systems, RFID and sensor systems, and smartphones. Moreover, we conduct research in cloud computing and applied cryptography. Professor Sadeghi and Dr. Wohlgemuth are heading the PersoApp Community.

For more than ten years a multifaceted research alliance with focus on IT security has been growing in Darmstadt: at Technische Universität Darmstadt (TU Darmstadt), the Fraunhofer Institute for Secure Information Technology (Fraunhofer SIT) and the Darmstadt University of Applied Sciences. Since July 2008, the three institutions are bundling their competencies in the Darmstadt LOEWE Center for Advanced Security Research Darmstadt (CASED). LOEWE is an initiative to support the development and economic excellence in Hessen. The Hessian Ministry for Science and the Arts provides initial funding for this initiative, thus successfully promoting regional key aspects especially through interconnecting science, non-university research and economy.

At this alliance in Darmstadt, more than 200 scientists are doing research on current and future IT security topics. Sixteen professorships are specializing in different IT security subject areas. A total of 33 professorships from natural science, engineering, economic science and human disciplines are involved in CASED projects. This thematic diversity is unique within Europe and makes Darmstadt a popular choice among students. Technische Universität Darmstadt is offering a Master’s degree in IT Security and at the Darmstadt University of Applied Sciences IT Security is a major field of study in the Master´s degree of Computer Sciences. Both universities cooperate in teaching. Professionals can expand their education in the T.I.S.P. seminar or a multitude of other expert workshops at Fraunhofer SIT.
