Security, Privacy and Trust Unit

The Internet in many aspects is a reflection of human society. Thus using the internet opens up not only exciting opportunities, but also risks.

The transition of the Web to Network of Knowledge and the introduction of new technologies such as Linked Data provides new ways to counter those risks, but may also create threats.

The mission of the Security, Privacy and Trust Unit (USPT) in DERI is to deliver solutions that ensure confidence in using Networked Knowledge for Internet users and enterprises. This is done by identifying and assessing risks and by developing new solutions that address them by combining expertise in areas such as privacy, trust, cryptographic techniques, anonymity or provenance, and linked data.
