ATHENE researchers present paper at Eurocrypt 2024

Two papers co-authored by ATHENE researcher Prof. Sebastian Faust from TU Darmstadt have been accepted at the prestigious 43rd Annual International Conference on the Theory and Applications of Cryptographic Techniques, Eurocrypt for short. Both papers deal with the protection of cryptographic systems against side-channel attacks, in particular masking methods. This involves randomising the chip's calculations in order to hide side-channel information from an attacker.

ATHENE on the MS Wissenschaft

MS Wissenschaft starts its tour of Germany today. Around 30 interactive exhibits are on board, inviting to touch and explore. Also on board is an exhibit from ATHENE | Fraunhofer SIT about the darknet. Under the motto 'Darknet - heller als gedacht', the predominantly young visitors will learn what exactly the darknet is and that it is not only criminals who operate in the Darknet. The darknet is also used to surf the Internet anonymously and to avoid being tracked by the advertising industry. And people who are politically persecuted or fear repression in their home countries use the darknet to read uncensored news or organise anonymously.

ATHENE launches German-Israeli research cooperation on cyber security in the energy sector

ATHENE and the Israeli Ministry of Energy and Infrastructure of the State of Israel are launching a three-year collaborative research program in which researchers from Israeli universities will work with ATHENE researchers to develop solutions to cybersecurity problems in the energy sector. For an initial period of three years, the Israeli Ministry of Energy is funding researchers from Israeli universities to work with ATHENE researchers to lay the foundations for improving cybersecurity in the energy sector. The initial focus will be on the development of new, practical architectures for a more cyber resilient energy supply, the development of methods for detecting attacks at all levels of the energy sector, and the development of methods for defending against denial-of-service attacks against the energy sector.

ATHENE position paper calls for data protection precautions

Cybersecurity researchers are often unable to comply with data protection regulations because they do not know before the start of a research activity whether and what personal data they will be processing. Our data protection experts have therefore formulated a proposed addition to the GDPR. Their concern: The legally binding introduction of data protection precautions that take unplanned data access into account.
