Josef Ressel Center for Unified Threat Intelligence on Targeted Attacks (TARGET)

The Josef Ressel Center for Unified Threat Intelligence on Targeted Attacks (TARGET) is a research institution operated by the St. Pölten University of Applied Sciences. Its mission is to explore novel techniques for detecting and mitigating targeted attacks on IT systems. The research objective is to develop a unified methodology for the detection and mitigation of this new class of cyber-threats.

Privacy and Security in Online Advertisement

PriSAd – the project „Privacy and Security in Online Advertisement” aims at an integral analysis of privacy and security of online advertising networks.

Usable Privacy Box (upribox) 2

The usable privacy box (upribox) is a network tool that filters ads on all connected devices such as smartphones or laptops and ultimately protects the user’s privacy. The upribox 2.0 is even easier to use and introduces new features.

Usable Privacy Box (upribox)

The project "usable privacy box" (upribox) developes a software and creates a device that protects internet privacy and ensures data security.

Smartphone Security

This research project focuses on more or less neglected topics of cyber security (IT security) concerning smartphones, tablet-PCs and BYOD (bring your own device).
