DINGFEST - Toolbox for searching digital tracks

01/01/2016 to 31/12/2019

The partners in the project DINGFEST are dedicated to the detection of harmful system states, the forensic analysis of digital traces and the trustworthy, pseudonymized notification of security incidents.

According to the IT Security Act, notifications are made to competent authorities through trust centers. In addition to exploring these fundamental and application-oriented questions, the DINGFEST project is creating a modular toolkit in an open-source model.

This tool suite is designed to meet the requirements for analyzing complex IT infrastructures. The consortium has three universities and four companies working closely together.

In addition to the technical details, the project will also intensively deal with the legal - in particular data protection - implications.
