Security in Telecommunications


 Security in Telecommunications


​Security in Telecommunications - SecT researches the limits and foundations for achievable security, to create the most secure and reliable systems.

Research Focus
Functioning information and communication systems are of core significance for business and society. The constant development of secure and reliable communication technologies is therefore at the heart of research in the field of security in telecommunications.

Under the leadership of Prof. Dr. Jean-Pierre Seifert, scientists are working in the areas of access control, encryption, security of online transactions, management of privacy, anonymity and identity, as well as system security are searching for solutions for designing secure communications and network infrastructure.

Theories and methods for secure systems
The Telekom Innovation Laboratories (T-Labs) primarily encourage basic research. "The challenge," said Professor Seifert, "lies in working out what security is actually possible in theory and in practice under the conditions of constant new attack scenarios that could arise." Based on this research, Seifert wants to drive forward the development of theories and methods that will enable the design of secure and reliable information and communication systems.
