Usability of Risk-based Implicit Authentication (URIA)

The research project URIA inspects the widely deployed password-based authentication. Nearly everyone knows the difficulty of choosing and, especially, remembering good passwords. Password-secured systems also inhere high security risks due to its fast "crackability". Hence, password-based authentication has weaknesses in terms of usability as well as security. In contrast to that, Risk-based authentication has the potential of improving security without degrading usability.

Ultra-Large Scale Systems Security (ULS3)

The research project ULS3 elaborates and evaluates security mechanisms for ultra large-scale REST-based systems. The two main goals of ULS3 are: (1) the development of a general REST-Security framework while considering the architectural constraints of REST and (2) user-centric design of REST-Security APIs enabling software developers using security mechanisms in an effective as well as efficient manner.
