Secure and reliable - for tomorrow and the day after tomorrow
We deal with forward-looking topics relating to the security of smart cards and documents – from counterfeit protection to artificial ageing. Product security does not only result from individual security elements or cryptologically secured processes, but also from their interaction.
Security concepts for well thought-out, tamper-proof and durable products set the agenda for our research programme. ID documents as well as interconnected security applications will only be accepted if they are found to be secure and reliable. This requires to strike the correct balance between personal acceptability and the public concern about security.
