Interdisciplinary Centre for Security, Reliability and Trust

Communication networks and software systems are becoming more and more interconnected as we expect to access services and applications anywhere and anytime. Vital infrastructures and societal functions depend on the security and reliability of these systems. The failure of a network or system can lead to severe financial consequences or even loss of lives.

SnT targets research and PhD education in one of today’s most important fields of ICT. SnT fosters interaction and collaboration with industrial, international, and government partners. SnT launched a partnership program where key partners contribute know-how and resources to develop the research centre.
