You are responsible for setting up and further developing the KASTEL laboratory for researching and evaluating security solutions for industrial production or Industrie 4.0. For this purpose, it is necessary to set up a laboratory that is as close to practice as possible with typical automation components and networks as well as the implementation of a production process.

Building on the experience gained during lab setup, you will then research and evaluate solutions and procedures that increase the level of safety that can be achieved. Example research topics here include attack detection in industrial networks, testing for robustness and security of industrial components, or implementing advanced security mechanisms in OPC UA.  

In addition, there is the possibility of a part-time doctorate.
