DLS in Cybersecurity: New Threat Models for Cryptography

Prof. Dr. Bart Preneel, KU Leuven, Belgium

July, 20, 2017, 16:15 – 17:15

TU Darmstadt, Piloty-Building S2|02, Raum C 110, Hochschulstraße 10, 64289 Darmstadt

Traditionally cryptography is used to protect communications and stored data. The cost of strong cryptography has been decreasing and today cryptography is used in tens of billions of devices. However, it has become apparent that ever more sophisticated attacks are launched to undermine or bypass cryptography: these attacks include compromising end systems, exploiting vulnerabilities in key management procedures, and inserting backdoors in cryptographic standards. We conclude by analyzing how these new threat models affect future research in cryptology and information security.

DLS in Cybersecurity: Sanctum - Towards an Open-Source, Formally-Verified Secure Processor

Prof. Srini Devadas, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Cambridge, USA

September, 21, 2017, 16:15 – 17:15

TU Darmstadt, Piloty Building S2|02, room C 110, Hochschulstraße 10, 64289 Darmstadt

Architectural isolation can be used to secure computation on a remote secure processor with a private key where the privileged software is potentially malicious as recently deployed by Intel's Software Guard Extensions (SGX). This talk will first describe the Sanctum secure processor architecture, which offers the same promise as SGX, namely strong provable isolation of software modules running concurrently and sharing resources, but protects against an important class of additional software attacks that infer private information by exploiting resource sharing....

Workshop Security and Privacy for Big Data

November, 01 – 02, 2017

Fraunhofer SIT | Rheinstraße 75| 64295 Darmstadt

In order to develop Big-Data solutions it is not enough to process big data amounts timely. Every professional implementation must fulfil minimum requirements regarding security and data protection. Although there is a competence gap between Big-Data and security technologies this seminar would like to close it.

T.I.S.P. Seminar in Darmstadt

November, 20 – 24, 2017

Fraunhofer SIT | Rheinstraße 75| 64295 Darmstadt

Information security is becoming more and more important: in order to protect electronic business processes, companies are increasingly looking for qualified employees who can prove that they are equal to the complex challenges of IT security. The TeleTrusT Information Security Professional (T.I.S.P.) is the only effective proof of this kind in Europe. CRISP-Partner Fraunhofer SIT offers seminars to prepare for the exam.
