Trust@HsH participates at TCG Members Meeting 2014 in Barcelona

The triennially hosted members meeting of the Trusted Computing Group (TCG) is the place for planning and coordinating the tasks and activities within the workgroups of the TCG and a great opportunity to bounce off ideas with talented infividuals from both industry and academia.

Leonard Renners and Thomas Rossow from the Trust@HsH research group participated in this year’s June meeting that was held in Barcelona from 24th of until 26th of July. They endorsed the new developments within the Trust@HsH group (e.g. in the SIMU and VisITMeta research project) and contributed to discussions about the future of the IF-MAP and TNC specifications.

They were also happy to have fruitful and interesting conversations with some of our long-time partners within the TCG such as Liza Lorenzin (Juniper Networks), Steve Hanna (Infineon), Andreas Steffen (Hochschule für Technik Rapperswil) and Henk Birkholz (Fraunhofer SIT).

A Change in Leadership

Trust@HsH group founder and former group lead Prof. Dr. Josef von Helden has been elected for the office of president of the University of Applied Sciences and Arts, Hanover and has taken office on May, 12th (see official press release). As a consequence thereof, he unfortunaltey had to resign as the group lead of Trust@HsH.

Luckily, with Prof. Dr. Volker Ahlers, Prof. Dr. Felix Heine and Prof. Dr. Carsten Kleiner as new group lead and Leonard Renners as an additional research associate in the SIMU project, the Trust@HsH is stronger in members than ever before and eager to tackle new scientific challenges.

We wish Prof. Dr. von Helden good fortune for his new assignment and may he lead the univiersity with the same passion, commitment and aptitude that he has built up and managed the Trust@HsH group.
