Secure Storage of Keys in Software (Secure-Secrets-Store)

Project Description

The aim of the project is to analyze the extent to which cryptographic keys and sensitive data can be securely (striving for CIA +) stored without the use of dedicated hardware. Based on this analysis, a concept is developed for re-encryption based authentication, accompanied by a recommendation for a secure cryptographic key storage architecture in software.
