Research at KASTEL SRL

Research at KASTEL Security Research Labs is distinguished by its broad scope. Privacy and reliability aspects are naturally part of IT security; basic and applied research complement each other, and a comprehensive approach to IT security needs to look not just at the technical system, but also at its social environment as well as its human aspects.
