Current Projects


Kompetenzzentrum für angewandte Sicherheitstechnologie

The main topics intelligent infrastructure, cloud computing and public security challenge the IT security of the future. In addition to the classical term of security one has to deal with threats from the inside as well. It is not enough anymore only to look at security issues of system components. We have to focus on transdisciplinary methods. The Kompetenzzentrum für Angewandte Sicherheits-TEchnoLogie (KASTEL) is a research center for cyber security and combine several areas of IT security and their users.


Kompetenzzentrum für angewandte Sicherheitstechnologie

The KeY System is a formal software development tool that aims to integrate design, implementation, formal specification, and formal verification of object-oriented software as seamlessly as possible. At the core of the system is a novel theorem prover for the first-order Dynamic Logic for Java with a user-friendly graphical interface.

The project was started in November 1998 at the University of Karlsruhe. It is now a joint project of KIT, Chalmers University of Technology, Gothenburg, and TU Darmstadt. The KeY tool is available for download.
