Office: TEL 1303


Karsten Bsufka completed his doctorate on "Public Key Infrastructures in Agent Architectures for the Realization of Service-Based Applications" at the TU Berlin in 2006. His dissertation was based on his work within the projects for the development of the Serviceware Framework JIAC. The focus of his work was the implementation of security and communication mechanisms in JIAC. These security mechanisms were subject to certification according to Common Criteria. Since 2005, Mr. Bsufka led several research projects at the DAI-Labor and he took over the leadership of the CC SEC at the DAI-Labor in 2013.

His current research focus is in the area of self-protection for IT environments, one focus being automated, continuous security audits of a network. Besides working on research projects, Mr. Bsufka is also responsible for the courses on cybersecurity at DAI-Labor.
