2020

An Android Developer Study on the Use of Privacy-Enhancing Technologies
In this study conducted by the department for Information Security at Leibniz University Hannover in Germany, we research the Use of Privacy-Enhancing Technologies of Google Play Android app developers.
Developer Research Survey
In this study, the computer security department at Leibniz University Hannover investigates how developers write secure code. We examine if developers’ language proficiency has any impact on the same.
Studie: Log Management und GDPR
In dieser Studie untersucht der Lehrstuhl für IT-Sicherheit an der Leibniz Universität Hannover, wie Unternehmen und Organisationen die Anforderungen im Hinblick auf Datenschutz und Datensicherheit im Kontext von Logging vor dem Hintergrund der DSGVO umsetzen.
Responsible Artificial Intelligence
The PhD program 'Responsible Artificial Intelligence in the Digital Society' of the Research Center L3S, Leibniz Universität Hannover, Technische Universität Braunschweig and Hannover University of Applied Sciences and Arts offers 14 scholarships funded by the Ministry of Science and Culture of Lower Saxony. The disciplines involved are computer science, law and sociology. The aim of the PhD program is the interdisciplinary education of young scientists in the highly topical field of Artificial Intelligence with the focus on explainability and justification, discrimination and bias, interpretability, quality assurance and security and data protection.
IoT Nanny
Gemeinsam mit ForscherInnen der University of California in Berkeley untersuchen wir verschiedene Aspekte und Probleme, welche im Zusammenhang mit Kinderbetreuung im Hause der Eltern auftreten können. Hierbei interessieren wir uns insbesondere für Haushalte, in welchen Smart Home Geräte oder Überwachungskameras installiert sind, unabhängig davon, ob sie aktiv genutzt werden oder nicht.

2019

Cyberangriffe gegen Unternehmen
In dem vom BMWi, PwC und der VHV-Stiftung geförderten Projekt wird untersucht, inwiefern insbesondere kleine und mittelständischen Unternehmen von Cyberangriffen betroffen sind und was sie tun, um sich zu schützen. Mit dem Projekt wird ein Beitrag zur Erhöhung der IT-Sicherheit in Deutschland geleistet.
PQmail
The PQmail research project funded by NBank explores quantum computer resistant and usable email encryption protocols. Cryptography experts estimate that quantum computers will be able to break widely used encryption algorithms in a few years. The aim of the project is to offer secure and usable email encryption to everyone even in a post-quantum world.
