Research in Cyber Security
The KIT Graduate School Cyber Security provides its researchers with a holistic view of IT security, enabling them to adress the entire security life-cycle: from design over deployment to repeated analysis during execution. To achieve this goal, we promote research across disciplinary boundaries, bringing together different domains with a focus on cyber security.
For the field of cyber security, interdisciplinary research is of particular importance. Without a deep understanding of different disciplines, new developments cannot interlock across all levels of an IT system. After all, even the most bullet-proof cryptographic scheme is of little value if it is not computable in time or if it exposes information via side-channels on a hardware level.
Research at the Graduate School is grouped in the areas of hardware and software security, human and societal factors in security as well as legal aspects of security. Our members focus their work on cross-cutting topics among five research fields.
