ATHENE Lecture with Ulrich Rührmair

Prof. Ulrich Rührmair from LMU München / University of Connecticut is a guest at the ATHENE Lecture Series. He talks about: "Scalable Security without Classical Secrets"

At the ATHENE Lectures, we invite established national and inter­national cybersecurity experts to give us insights into their latest research findings.
The lectures usually take place hybrid, so that there is also the opportunity to meet and exchange ideas in person with the key actors in cybersecurity.

ATHENE Lecture Series are organized by Prof. Haya Shulman, ATHENE | Goethe University Frankfurt | Fraunhofer SIT.

On 28.03. Ulrich Rührmair, LMU München / University of Connecticut will be our guest.

Title: Scalable Security without Classical Secrets
Recent predictions assume that the IoT will encompass 42bn devices by 2025, arguably making it one of the largest endeavours mankind has ever undertaken. Its outstanding growth naturally creates new and unforeseen possibilities, but also unprecedented security issues. Three pressing and unsolved problems include how we can bring secret keys into billions of mobile and inexpensive devices; how we can effectively protect them there against adversarial access; and how security can still be upheld in the face of potentially untrusted hardware manufacturers. Our talk will sketch how the recent primitive of a Physical Unclonable Function (PUF) can be useful for all three abovementioned questions, showing that PUFs constitute an exceptionally promising tool for new forms of cost-effective, secure, and scalable networks.

The language of the lecture is English.
