Expert Interview: RFC 8391 – a Milestone in the Protection from Quantum Computers
Collaborating on the research project squareUP, researchers from genua and the Technical University of Darmstadt have developed a post-quantum signature scheme. This procedure is technically mature and a so-called Internet draft had been written in cooperation with other universities during the project.
Keep a Close Watch on Internal Network Traffic
Simple IT security solutions used up to now often have weaknesses and cyber attacks remain undiscovered for longer periods of time. IDS/IPS systems therefore make sense but they are complex and costly to administer. The Berlin-based IT service provider datenhain GmbH takes a different approach.
Internet Access for German Government (IVBB)
Data zips quickly and securely to and fro between all top-level German federal agencies along the government's Bonn-Berlin information network, the IVBB. Gateways between this and the public Internet are subject to demanding performance and security requirements. These needs are met using firewall clusters.
Ansbach Regional Authority uses Firewall from genua
The two conflicting requirements - high IT security and convenient networking - have been met by the Ansbach District Office by using the High Resistance Firewall genugate, a two-stage system, on its own Internet connection.
Firewall Cluster Protects RTL II
Provocation through unconventional formats is part of the concept of the successful TV channel, but also requires protective measures. This is where RTL II relies on proven solutions: Two firewall systems genugate, linked into a highly available cluster, protect the network of the TV channel against attacks from the Internet.
German Armed Services: Infrastructure for the Communication of Restricted Data
The IT strategy of the German armed services calls for the digitization of operations. At the same time, demands on IT security and usability for modern and attractive IT workplaces are increasing. Furthermore, more and more logistical and administrative tasks are being supported and represented using IT and apps.
