Dear visitors,Institut ProtectIT

On our website you will find all information about our core competencies, further information about teaching in the field of cyber security, our research and development, as well as information about the annual ProtectIT Security Convention - ProSecCon on the premises of the danube campus of the Deggendorf Institute of Technology.

The inter-faculty institute ProtectIT is framed by professors, research associates, technical staff members and research assistants  that emerged from the research group Trusted Computing Platform in Deggendorf. In contrast to university institutes, we distinguish ourselves through our strong focus on application-orientated research and our close conection to industrial partners. The further education and creation of scientific and business networks is an important goal of the institute.

The main focus of the research activity of ProtectIT lies in the protection of inter-networked embedded systems, the detection of anomalies in network traffic by using methods of artificial intelligence, as well as the reaction to such security incidents by developing and implementing appropriate measures. The resreach is concentrated on following areas:

  • industrial automation technology,
  • critical infrastructures
  • automotive and avionic systems
  • IoT-devices

Our research projects aimed at increasing the security of industrial IoT, highly automated and autonomous driving also pursue the goal of expanding the interdisciplinary cooperation of the institute ProtectIT with the further research areas of the Deggendorf Institute of Technology. Our institute close contact with the technology campuses of DIT.


I would be very pleased to welcome you personally.
