Selected research topic: IT-Security within the automotive domain

As part of the research activity concerning the automotive environment at the Otto-von-Guericke university Automotive OvG the »Multimedia and Security« research group »evaluation« is examining sections of the IT-system that is part of todays cars and the automotive infrastructure in general.

Selected research topic: Media-, Network- and Computer-Forensics

Within the framework of the research on protocols relevant to IT-security, the »protocol group« also focusses on forensic analyses besides working on steganographic and cryptographic protocols.
This forensic research covers all three subsets of IT-Forensics (Media-, Network- and Computer-Forensics). IT-Forensics, which has been given a high priority, will be looked at in a wholistic approach covering the entire forensic process. This includes the derivation and evalutation of measures to be taken in all of the three stages of the forensic process (preemptive, runtime and post-mortem measures).

As a result of the actual research in the field of Media-Forensics a first Microphone and Environment classification could be presented on ACM MM&Security Workshop 2007:

  • Christian Kraetzer, Andrea Oermann, Jana Dittmann and Andreas Lang: Digital Audio Forensics: A First Practical Evaluation on Microphone and Environment Classification. To appear in the Proceedings of the 2007 ACM Multimedia and Security Workshop in Dallas, Texas, September 20-21, 2007. pdf

Furthermore a behaviour based framework for the classification of specific Trojan Horses was developed as a necessary step in the context of forensic evaluations.
