Secure IT-Services on mobile devices (SeCom)

Project Description

The aim of the study is to analyze the possible uses of mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets in the high-security sector. On the one hand, the focus is on secure data transmission and storage of text and image material, and on the other hand on the special conditions of the operating system environments of current platforms (Android, iOS, Blackberry) and their suitability and potential for highly secure communication. Another focus is on the application possibilities of virtualization and VPN access on mobile devices. Content of the study are technical and organizational requirements and framework conditions, which allow the most user-friendly handling of access to and transmission of highly sensitive documents. The consideration is based on the security requirements, which the standard "EU Confidential" prescribes.
