KASTEL Security Research Labs (SRL) bundles IT security organized in research groups and labs at the Karlsruhe research location. Our aim is to develop a powerful approach instead of isolated partial solutions. The main focus is on overall security in specific areas of application, such as power grids, intelligent mobility, or smart factories.
