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.
