Cryptography-based security solutions and cryptographic primitives can only support trust if sound implementations exist and users and developers are supported in integrating them into their applications. Thus, the goal of this project area is to develop methods and technologies that allow for secure implementation of cryptography and enable users and developers who may not be cryptography experts in properly applying cryptography.

E1 - Secure Integration of Cryptographic Software

Software engineers are regularly overwhelmed by the usage constraints that cryptographic components impose on their application interfaces. Frequently, components are initialized incorrectly, or security-sensitive error situations remain unhandled. Furthermore, programmers may disregard composition rules, leading to insecure combinations of cryptographic components. This project addresses these issues by providing an integrated system that not only pre-selects sensible combinations of components according to the developer's security demands, but also helps the developer to securely integrate them into his software system.
