Secure network

  • Saarland University computer scientists work to prevent hackers from remotely controlling cars

    Saarland scientists explain the dangerous situation: The growing interconnection of the individual components opens security holes.

    A luxury vehicle today contains multiple computers. During an hour's drive, it thus produces multiple gigabytes of data. Even less expensive vehicles are now brimming with information technology. The growing interconnection of the individual components opens dangerous security holes. One of these has now been closed by computer scientists at the Center for IT Security and Privacy (CISPA) and the German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence (DFKI) — with the help of software that manufacturers can retrofit into any car.

  • Secure networks for the Internet of the future

    Security in large data centres: This goal is being pursued by the european research project SENDATE.

    Two new projects at the University of Würzburg's Institute of Computer Science receive nearly EUR 750,000 worth of funding. The institute is working to make secure and efficient networks for the Internet of the future happen.
