Today, society relies on networked devices that collect vast amounts of data. However, the security of those devices is still in its infancy. Each week, we hear of new hacks, data leaks, and privacy violations. ITU’s IT security researchers aim to provide the tools and expertise necessary for protecting security and privacy for citizens and companies in our digitized society. Their research topics include security protocols, electronic voting, cyber-attacks and -defenses, and societal aspects of IT security and privacy.
