PrivTech WS18/19

PrivTech WS18/19

Seminar on Privacy-Preserving Technologies (PrivTech) offered during WS18/19.

In this seminar, we will look at techniques for protecting privacy that allow to process sensitive data under encryption without revealing the data itself. We will investigate both the theoretical background as well as practical issues of such solutions.

Participants choose a topic for which they get one or two publications that they will summarize in a written report and present in a talk.
