CASED, Center for Advanced Security Research Darmstadt

This center was established in Darmstadt, Germany and is funded by the LOEWE program of the Hesse government, with three parters i.e., TU Darmstadt, Fraunhofer SIT and Hochschule Darmstadt, focusing on IT security research and development. It involves computer scientists, engineers, physicist, legal experts and experts in business administration of TU Darmstadt, Fraunhofer SIT and Hochschule Darmstadt (University of Applied Sciences) who develop trend-setting IT security solutions useful commercially. Security is the focal point for the development of information technology (IT) which is the most important driving force for global innovation. However, current technical expertise does not guarantee security of computer which in future will be ubiquitous in the world of IT.
