Wel­come to the web pages of the IT Se­cur­ity group!

Novel technologies like Cloud Computing, Ubiquitous Computing, Big Data, Service Oriented Architectures, Industry 4.0, and the Internet of Things come with many novel attack surfaces. This yields a huge demand for security mechanisms that are usable in practice, even on simple and "lightweight" devices, and must achieve security properties that go significantly beyond classical security goals.

Our mission is to provide a solid foundation for the design and security analysis of applications that communicate over insecure networks. We develop techniques that can safely be used to realize secure network communication for a modern digital society.


The paper "Session Resumption Protocols and Efficient Forward Security for TLS 1.3 0-RTT" by Nimrod Aviram (Tel Aviv University), Kai Gellert and Tibor Jager (both Paderborn University, IT Security Group) was accepted to Eurocrypt 2019. This year's edition of one of the most prestigious IACR conferences will take place in Darmstadt in May.
