CRISP-Speaker talks about the furture of quantum cryptography
Quantum computers have opened up vistas of new drugs, innovative materials and artificial intelligence, but if harnessed to crack established encryption methods all computers would be vulnerable. CRISP-Speaker Prof. Johannes Buchmann explains what may lie ahead.
CRISP-Scientist Dr. Michael Kreutzer, Fraunhofer SIT, guest at Schloss Bellevue
The President of the Federal Republic Germany discusses current challenges for the democracy with German and international guests of economy, politics, culture, science and the general public in “Forum Bellevue zur Zunkunft der Demokratie”. This time with the motto “Fakt oder Fake? Über einen bedeutenden Unterscied for die Demokratie” a discussion about the current information and debate culture took place. Dr. Michael Kreutzer, project coordinator of the BMBF-research project DORIAN at Fraunhofer SIT, was a guest in the discussion about the current information culture.
"Eberbacher Gespräch": Fraunhofer SIT publishes a position paper on the future of cryptography
Fraunhofer SIT publishes a position paper about the future of cryptography. From online-banking to the blockchain – most IT security mechanisms for protecting data and digital communication are based on cryptography. Quantum computers and new forms of attacks are threatening many of these IT security mechanisms. How businesses and society can protect the cyber-world from such devastating threats in the future was discussed by experts in the realm of business, research, and politics at the “Eberbacher Gespräch” on “Next Generation Cryptography”.
A symbol for science and research
This year CRISP supports the March for Science as an official institution again. Among other supporters are TU Darmstadt, the “City of Science” Darmstadt as well as the Fraunhofer-Society. Whereas in 2017 the focus was on demonstrations, this year the dialogue between science and society is to be intensified. The Technische Universität Darmstadt takes part with a podiums discussion to the topic Digital Change..

Prof. Marc Fischlin is General Chair of the conference
At the beginning of December, scientists from all over the world will meet in Darmstadt to discuss the many research problems deriving from studies of existing standards, the development of revisions to existing standards, and the exploration of completely new areas of standardisation. Prof. Marc Fischlin, CYSEC [at] TU Darmstadt, is the general chair of the conference.
Prof. Ahmad-Reza Sadeghi talkes about Security threats in Cyberspace
Aim of the "Future Security Science Match" is to give an extensive insight into all security relevant topics and to invest in the international exchange between government representatives, non-government representatives, economy and science. The now established format traditionally takes place one day before the Munich Security Conference (MSC).
Students get an insight into Cybersecurtiy Research
On the 26th, April it’s time again: hundreds of schoolgirls flock the companies, authorities, institutes and research centers in Darmstadt to get a better insight into professions which they only very seldom consider in the subsequent choice of career. CRISP takes part in Girl’s Day, too: female scientist of the profile area CYSEC of TU Darmstadt and Fraunhofer SIT put together a colorful and interesting program for the girls.
