In this Master's specialisation, the focus is on learning to assess the security of existing ICT solutions, and on how to develop more secure solutions for the future.

This Master’s specialisation will teach you how to contribute in the design of new security systems. You’ll be able to draw up the security requirements of an application and discover where possible weaknesses lie. It covers a broad range of topics that is important for computer security, such as computer science (software, computer networks, and hardware, especially smart-cards and RFID), but also mathematical aspects (cryptography and security protocols), as well as organisational and management issues, legal aspects, and societal issues (in particular privacy).

Over the last decade, Radboud University has made a name for itself in this field both in and outside the country. The Digital Security Group revealed security flaws in the chip-card used for public transport smart cards like the London Oyster and the Dutch OV-chipkaart. Researchers of our group also found security vulnerabilities in commonly used car immobiliser systems.

Currently, we're leading the development of the IRMA card, an ID card that will better protect users' personal data against misuse, and the Networking and Cryptography library (NaCl), a new easy-to-use, high-speed and high-security software library.
