KASTEL - Comprehensible security in the networked world

01/01/2015 to 31/12/2017

The aim of the KASTEL project is to ensure the overall security of networked systems and applications based on them. This refers both to so-called innate perpetrators as well as to external attacks.

For this purpose, a holistic approach and an overall development methodology are explored. It is important to reconcile the required functionality with the security requirements, legal framework and data protection needs. KASTEL bundles the competencies available at the research location in Karlsruhe in order to pursue these application-related and interdisciplinary questions. Specialists from the fields of cryptography, IT security, software engineering, law, social and humanities work closely together.

They define new security goals and explore new threat models as well as methods of IT security and privacy. In addition to energy efficiency, the project also develops methods of encryption and anonymization for the protection of private data. For example, private-sphere-oriented methods for linking sensor data are being developed, which allow people to predict the flow of people at major events without revealing the identity of individual persons. Another focus of KASTEL is on the early detection and defense against cyber attacks.
