CRISP (Center for Research in Security and Privacy Darmstadt)

Under the core topic “Security at Large”, the center’s research activities focus on the study of security for large systems, starting with their individual components up to their interaction within comprehensive security solutions. The research areas “Secure Internet Infrastructure” and “Secure Web Applications” are both flagship projects at CRISP.

CRISP is comprised of several partner institutions that include Technische Universität Darmstadt with its CYSEC profile area for IT security research, the Darmstadt University of Applied Sciences, and the Fraunhofer Institute for Secure Information Technology (Fraunhofer SIT) and the Fraunhofer Institute for Computer Graphics Research (Fraunhofer IGD), both located in Darmstadt. This partnership represents the largest alliance of research institutes in the area of cybersecurity within Europe.

CRISP is funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research and the Hessian Ministry for Science and the Arts.
