Team A-SIT

The A-SIT team's research at IAIK is driven by information security needs of the public sector, like in eGovernment. We are thrilled by exploring technologies that help advance the public sector secure electronic service offerings. We have expertise in basic building blocks like electronic signatures and electronic identity. With mGovernment initiatives and mobile-first strategies, a current research focus is on mobile security, like on app security analysis. We also research on the role of emerging concepts like distributed ledger or artificial intelligence in public services. For some recent results see the A-SIT Technology Server.

EGIZ as part of A-SIT supports the Federal Ministry for Digital and Economic Affairs in further developing the ICT strategy of the federal government. It conducts research in the area of technical innovations in the eGovernment environment. We are driven by advancing technologies in the field of identity management, digital signatures and other security technologies in eGovernment, like electronic delivery.

Team leaders are Arne Tauber and Herbert Leitold.
