IT security and security through IT
We're surrounded by information technology whether we realize it or not. We have come to depend on the security and reliability of these systems, because personal and business data have also become a lucrative target for criminals. Fraunhofer researchers are working on tomorrow's security technologies: mobile security solutions, Internet early-warning for rapid threat identification, and data protection using secure digital identities, electronic ID cards and signatures. Fraunhofer specialists have created hardware and software to support rescue teams in the shape of autonomous robots, the SmartControlRoom and the digital situation table.
