Take a look at our current and past research and development projects. We research and develop new technologies and tools for cybersecurity and payment security. Our work helps reinforce privacy protection in today’s information society.


  • Security Engineering Group

    • CACE
      The CACE project is an international project, co-financed by the European Commission. It involves 12 different research and business partners from 10 countries. Our research group is mainly concerned with the development of a compiler and verification suite for protocols realising zero-knowledge proofs of knowledge, and leads the relevant work unit.
    • Lugh
      The goal of the Lugh project is to develop a new deep data capturing tool that overcomes the limitations of existing tools. Lugh is currently able to capture complete file modification and memory change histories and stack backtraces, partial instruction traces and screenshots on Windows operating systems.

    Security and Privacy Group

    • MEMdoc
      This project is a collaboration between the University of Bern’s Institute for Evaluative Research in Medicine (IEFM) and our group. We have developed a privacy-oriented architecture for medicine. The project is centred on a platform for medical documentation that collects data in medical registers, for example hip replacement registers, spine operation registers, ophthalmology or oncology registers. In order to respect patient privacy, our architecture separates information relating to the patient’s identity, stored locally in the country of treatment, from anonymised medical information that is centrally stored in Bern for statistical purposes. This architecture allows the user to both respect the patient’s need for privacy and achieve the critical mass needed to produce valuable statistics.
    • FIDIS
      FIDIS (Future of IDentity in the Information Society) was a Network of Excellence (NoE) under the 6th Framework Programme of the European Union. The consortium was made up of 24 partners and was led by the University of Frankfurt (Germany). Partners included academic institutions (University of Freiburg (Germany), KU Leuven (Belgium), INSEAD (France), Vrije Universiteit Brussel (Belgium), industrial enterprises (Microsoft Aachen, IBM Zurich) and SMEs (Axsionics (Switzerland), SIRIX (Germany)). The project defined new concepts surrounding identity in the emergent Information Society. A particular focus was the concept of ‘virtual identity’ and its use as a new model of interaction between stakeholders in the Information Society.
