Professor Stefan Katzenbeisser holds the Chair of Computer Engineering at the University of Passau. He conducts research on cyber security in embedded systems, on secure critical infrastructures and on technical data protection. He is spokesperson of the new research cluster "ForDaySec - Security in everyday digitalisation", which is funded by the Bavarian Science Ministry and where researchers from computer science, law and sociology have come together to develop new types of technical procedures to provide security in day-to-day digital life. Besides participating in research projects on secure mobility, he is also involved in the research initiative "6G Research and Innovation Cluster (6G-RIC)" which is coordinated by Fraunhofer HHI and aims to develop mobile telecommunication systems of the sixth generation by pushing back the limits of technology.

'My research focuses on the design and analysis of security infrastructures. We cover the entire spectrum, from developing security anchors for embedded systems to designing security concepts for critical infrastructures. We are currently developing methods to protect user data of autonomous vehicles against cyber attacks. In order to design concepts for the future, we are dependent on views from the industry and other disciplines. In addition, it is important to me to introduce young scientists to our research at an early stage. We regularly offer seminars on our topics.'
