Existing Academic Alliances
Friedrich-Alexander-University Erlangen-Nuremberg (FAU)
The significant insecurities of digital data exchange are on everyone’s mind right now. Professors, students and faculty members of relevant universities are aware of the problem and are able to encrypt their data exchanges. However, the technically inexperienced communication partner will often be overwhelmed by common security solutions. One of my former students has developed CryptoTec Cipherbook to make digital data exchange secure and easy to use.
At the Friedrich-Alexander-University we use CryptoTec Cipherbook for the coordination of confidential research results as well as for our personal communication. All data is transferred encrypted in CryptoTec Cipherbook .
Furthermore, the chair for information technology 1 of the Friedrich-Alexander-University uses the CryptoTec Cipherbook Enterprise package and the department of computer sciences 1 is CryptoTec’s first partner in the Academic Alliance. In this context, we are running our own CryptoTec Cipherbook Enterprise Server. After successful review we want to expand the program to the entire FAU.
