Dipl.-Inform. Sebastian Zickau


In 2002, I finished my diploma thesis during a project at the IT-Service-Center of the Technische Universität Berlin where I worked as a student research assistant. The main focus of the thesis was on e-mail and smartcard security. After I received my diploma, I continued to work at the tubIT Service Center in Berlin as a research assistant. During this time, I contributed to several security, policy and access control projects, such as TUBIT and OBAN. In 2008, I started to work as a research assistant at the University of Reading in England for more than two years. There I joined the EU-funded Hydra Middleware project (now LinkSmart middleware) at the IMSS (now ISR) research group in the School of Systems Engineering. My main focus was on security/policy aspects and context-awareness functionality during the realization of the Hydra software along with work on project demonstrators and general research.

In March 2012, I joined the Telekom Innovation Laboratories in Berlin. As a research scientist in Prof. Axel Küpper's group Service-centric Networking, I contribute to the project TRESOR.
