MediTRUST - TPM-based VPNs for Confidential Medial Communication

04.11.2011
Project “MediTRUST” funded by the EC and the state of North Rhine-Westphalia on MEDICA 2011, November 16-19, 2011, Düsseldorf, Germany, Hall 10 Stand F05

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.

Im Focus: Unprecedented insight into two-dimensional magnets using diamond quantum sensors

For the first time, physicists at the University of Basel have succeeded in measuring the magnetic properties of atomically thin van der Waals materials on the nanoscale. They used diamond quantum sensors to determine the strength of the magnetization of individual atomic layers of the material chromium triiodide. In addition, they found a long-sought explanation for the unusual magnetic properties of the material. The journal Science has published the findings.

The use of atomically thin, two-dimensional van der Waals materials promises innovations in numerous fields in science and technology. Scientists around the...

Im Focus: Full speed ahead for SmartEEs at Automotive Interiors Expo 2019

Flexible, organic and printed electronics conquer everyday life. The forecasts for growth promise increasing markets and opportunities for the industry. In Europe, top institutions and companies are engaged in research and further development of these technologies for tomorrow's markets and applications. However, access by SMEs is difficult. The European project SmartEEs - Smart Emerging Electronics Servicing works on the establishment of a European innovation network, which supports both the access to competences as well as the support of the enterprises with the assumption of innovations and the progress up to the commercialization.

It surrounds us and almost unconsciously accompanies us through everyday life - printed electronics. It starts with smart labels or RFID tags in clothing, we...

Im Focus: Energy-saving new LED phosphor

The human eye is particularly sensitive to green, but less sensitive to blue and red. Chemists led by Hubert Huppertz at the University of Innsbruck have now developed a new red phosphor whose light is well perceived by the eye. This increases the light yield of white LEDs by around one sixth, which can significantly improve the energy efficiency of lighting systems.

Light emitting diodes or LEDs are only able to produce light of a certain colour. However, white light can be created using different colour mixing processes.

Im Focus: Quantum gas turns supersolid

Researchers led by Francesca Ferlaino from the University of Innsbruck and the Austrian Academy of Sciences report in Physical Review X on the observation of supersolid behavior in dipolar quantum gases of erbium and dysprosium. In the dysprosium gas these properties are unprecedentedly long-lived. This sets the stage for future investigations into the nature of this exotic phase of matter.

Supersolidity is a paradoxical state where the matter is both crystallized and superfluid. Predicted 50 years ago, such a counter-intuitive phase, featuring...

Im Focus: Explosion on Jupiter-sized star 10 times more powerful than ever seen on our sun

A stellar flare 10 times more powerful than anything seen on our sun has burst from an ultracool star almost the same size as Jupiter

  • Coolest and smallest star to produce a superflare found
  • Star is a tenth of the radius of our Sun
  • Researchers led by University of Warwick could only see...
