Security is a Matter of Trust
Technological Foundations for Trustworthy Systems and Products
The Big Picture
Our world relies on the security of sophisticated and interconnected computer systems, the sheer complexity of these systems, and the unclear security assurances that their different layers provide. In particular, security depends on the complex interactions between the different layers that build up our computer systems. Focusing on single layers and making inaccurate assumptions about other layers leads to many of the security vulnerabilities we see today.
Lamarr Security Research strives to rethink how computer systems are built, connected, and interact to create technology layers that are usable, verifiable, and efficient. It is necessary to perform open research on novel technologies to enable trust in order to create a world where data security and privacy are a matter of course. Lamarr Security Research works on bridging the current gaps between the layers by conducting research from hardware to humans. We work on understanding today’s security issues to rethink how the computer systems of the future are to be built.
Security is not enough…
- when the overhead hinders or complicates deployment in practice.
- when security is just a claim and not the result of rigorous verification and a transparent process.
- when technologies are used incorrectly or not used at all.
Lamarr Security Research brings security and privacy together with efficiency, usability, and verifiability to create sustainable trust in future systems and technologies.
Bridging the Gaps…
- between the hardware and software for efficiency and to prevent side-channel attacks.
- between algorithms and systems to enable cryptography in practice.
- between the humans and technology to provide trust and transparency.
Lamarr Security Research, provides expertise in all relevant security research layers in order to bridge the gaps from the hardware level to human interaction, from the transistor-level up to complex cloud applications.
Lamarr Security Research is starting its research with the following two projects. Projects will be added as the center grows.
