The In­for­ma­ti­on Se­cu­ri­ty Group was es­ta­blis­hed in 2013 at the Fa­cul­ty of Elec­tri­cal En­gi­nee­ring and In­for­ma­ti­on Tech­no­lo­gy in co­ope­ra­ti­on with the Horst-Görtz-In­sti­tu­te for IT-Se­cu­ri­ty (HGI). The group is chai­red by Prof. Dr. Chris­ti­na Pöp­per (since 2016 in the form of vi­sit­ing pro­fes­sor) and per­forms re­se­arch and teaching on in­for­ma­ti­on se­cu­ri­ty to­pics with a focus on wire­less sys­tems. In 2016, the group was re­na­med as Wire­less Se­cu­ri­ty Group (more in­for­ma­ti­on).

Our main re­se­arch area is com­mu­ni­ca­ti­on and net­work se­cu­ri­ty. This com­pri­ses se­cu­ri­ty re­se­arch in lo­ca­liza­t­i­on (for ter­restri­al and sa­tel­li­te-ba­sed lo­ca­liza­t­i­on sys­tems) as well as re­sis­tant wire­less com­mu­ni­ca­ti­on tech­ni­ques, no­ta­b­ly for ad-hoc com­mu­ni­ca­ti­on sce­na­ri­os.
