Virtual Private Networks (VPN’s) are a state-of-the-art means to provide privacy during transmission of personal medical data or other critical information.
Protection in VPN’s is based on encryption of all IP packages to be transmitted. In case of highly sensible (i.e. medical) content special hardware appliances (VPN-Routers) are used to protect the used cryptographical keys from being recovered by spyware or other malware.
The project “MediTRUST” funded by the EC and the state of North Rhine-Westphalia and carried out by the Ruhr University of Bochum, the Sirrix AG and Fraunhofer Institute for Biomedical Engineering IBMT intends to substitute such external cryptographic appliances by using computer integrated chips (TPM - Trusted platform module) which are nowadays standard part of any state-of-the-art PC. As a result, additional costs for security features shall be reduced.
The main focus of the project MediTRUST is on medical networking, connecting health care providers with each other and with their authorities.Contact:

Cells need to repair damaged DNA in our genes to prevent the development of cancer and other diseases. Our cells therefore activate and send “repair-proteins”...
The Fraunhofer IWS Dresden and Technische Universität Dresden inaugurated their jointly operated Center for Additive Manufacturing Dresden (AMCD) with a festive ceremony on February 7, 2017. Scientists from various disciplines perform research on materials, additive manufacturing processes and innovative technologies, which build up components in a layer by layer process. This technology opens up new horizons for component design and combinations of functions. For example during fabrication, electrical conductors and sensors are already able to be additively manufactured into components. They provide information about stress conditions of a product during operation.
The 3D-printing technology, or additive manufacturing as it is often called, has long made the step out of scientific research laboratories into industrial...
Nature does amazing things with limited design materials. Grass, for example, can support its own weight, resist strong wind loads, and recover after being...
Nanometer-scale magnetic perforated grids could create new possibilities for computing. Together with international colleagues, scientists from the Helmholtz Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) have shown how a cobalt grid can be reliably programmed at room temperature. In addition they discovered that for every hole ("antidot") three magnetic states can be configured. The results have been published in the journal "Scientific Reports".
Physicist Dr. Rantej Bali from the HZDR, together with scientists from Singapore and Australia, designed a special grid structure in a thin layer of cobalt in...
