Prof. Johannes Buchmann is elected expert representative for the subject group Computer Science / Mathematics
Every two years, members of the Gesellschaft Deutscher Naturforscher und Ärzte e. V. (GDNÄ) elect one expert each in the disciplines of chemistry, physics, biology, medicine, mathematics and engineering. The representatives to be elected are proposed by the Board of Management and elected to the Board of Directors for a term of four years in a written procedure. CRISP spokesman Prof. Johannes Buchmann, CYSEC [at] TU Darmstadt, was elected as a representative for the subject group computer science / mathematics for the term 2019-2022.
Use blockchain technologies efficiently and safely for industrial applications
CRISP researchers from the TU Darmstadt and other partners from industry and research form a consortium to develop decentralized technologies for the next generation of intelligent industrial production. The research project called iBlockchain is funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF).
Student of the TU Darmstadt receives the first place in the category Bachelor Theses
Yesterday, the CAST IT-Security Promotional-Prize was awarded for the 18th time. Reviewers of CAST e.V. had previously reviewed all submissions and rated their quality. On this basis, nine authors were nominated for the finalist workshop. Among the bachelor theses Daniel Günther of the TU Darmstadt won. His work originated in the ENCRYPTO working group led by CRISP scientist Prof. Thomas Schneider.
CRISP researchers develop new JAB code with high data density for more counterfeit security: New applications in logistics and pharmaceutical industry
Researchers of Fraunhofer SIT have developed a barcode that consists of arbitrary colors and can assume any shape. The colored JAB code has a much higher data density compared to classical black and white bar and matrix codes. Therefore it can deposit much more information on the same surface, which leads to more security against counterfeiting.
CRISP Researchers of the TU Darmstadt publish three Paper
Researchers of the TU Darmstadt were able to place three papers at the 14th International Conference of Information Systems, short Wi, 2019. The conference, which takes place every two years, is one of the leading conferences in the field of business informatics in the German-speaking world. In 2019, the motto is "Human Practice - Digital Ecologies - Our Future".
CRISP researchers develop tools to detect dubious cases of damage
In a project funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research, researchers at Fraunhofer SIT have developed three technologies that enable insurance companies to automatically detect dubious insurance claims. The new methods allow images, texts and financial data to be examined. The first insurance companies in Germany are already testing the technologies.
SAP Security Research and TU Darmstadt join forces to take a quantum leap
SAP SE (NYSE: SAP) announced a cooperation between the SAP Security Research organization and the TU Darmstadt to investigate quantum-resistant security technologies for software development processes at SAP one of the leading security centers in Germany, to investigate quantum-resistant security technologies for software development processes at SAP.
Scientists explain how targeted Disinformation can be detected and stopped
In the policy paper series of the research group "Forum Privatheit", scientists from the interdisciplinary research project DORIAN publish a paper that explains how disinformation can be detected and contained. CRISP scientist Dr. Michael Kreutzer, Fraunhofer SIT, is one of the authors of the paper.
Federal Minister Julia Klöckner hands over funding decision for new research project
As part of the "GeoBox I" project, approved by the German Federal Ministry of Food and Agriculture (BMEL), Prof. Christian Reuter, head of the department "Wissenschaft und Technik für Frieden und Sicherheit (PEASEC)" at TU Darmstadt, works together with several project partners on standardization and reliability of the infrastructure needed in agriculture. After all, even in agriculture there is a conversation about "safety-critical infrastructure" - an attack can lead to production losses and food shortages. In order to prevent these, scientists are developing a prototype for a standardized and resilient infrastructure in which the data is kept decentralized and regionally networked. Federal Minister Julia Klöckner handed over the funding decision to the project managers today.
Four Students from the CRISP Environment are among the Nominees
For many years, CAST e.V. has been supporting the IT security newcomers in Germany with the invitation to tender for the CAST Förderpreis. Amongst this year's finalists are four works by Darmstadt students. The work was supervised by the TU Darmstadt, one in cooperation with the Fraunhofer Institute for Computer Graphics Research IGD.
