Decentralized Systems and Network Services Research Group

Under the term "Decentralized Systems and Network Services" we understand distributed and networked technical systems that span over more than one administrative domain. Hence, their operation depends on more than one party. Our research focuses on:

  • Blockchains, consensus and peer-to-peer networks
  • Network Security Monitoring
  • Secure and privacy-aware computing in partially trustworthy environments.
