Facing an inconvenient truth

Jean-Pierre Seifert is professor of security in telecommunications at TU Berlin as well as a researcher at the Berlin Institute for the Foundations of Learning and Data. His research focuses on topics such as hardware security, cryptography technology, and quantum computers. He is also an established specialist for computer and communication security. Along with other experts he has been warning for some time now of the dangers of cyberattacks for private businesses and critical state infrastructures. Even before the start of the war in Ukraine his research demonstrated that almost all hardware solutions used in the commercial sector and even those intended to protect state high security areas do not function adequately.
