Smart Protection in Infrastructures and Networks (SPIN)

Our mission at SPIN is to enable secure, trustworthy and privacy aware interactions among connected actors and services. SPIN researchers are working on self-organised collaborative detection and response mechanisms that are trust and privacy aware as well as resilient to attacks and faults. Our smart solutions range from sophisticated and user-friendly trust management solutions to collaborative network intrusion detection systems, privacy-preserving IoT middleware, and resilient cyber physical systems.


TaaS4Cloud, a web service, which is developed for potential cloud users to assess the level of cloud providers’ security capabilities.
Twitterize is a user-friendly solution to public as well as confidential and anonymous group communication for Twitter.
TraCINg stands for “TUD Cyber Incident moNitor” and as the name implies it is a centralized cyber incident monitor based (mostly) on honeypots.
HosTaGe: Honeypot-To-Go
HosTaGe is a lightweight, low-interaction honeypot for Android operating system devices that aim on the detection of malicious, wireless network environments.
BSF (Botnet Simulation Framework)
Our BSF models P2P botnets, including several wide-spread Botnets in greatdetail, in the popular OMNeT++ framework.
The ID2T (Intrusion Detection Dataset Toolkit) aims on the creation of labeled datasets that contain user defined synthetic attacks.
CertainTrust SDK
Our CertainTrust SDK allows to compute the expectation or probability on the foundation of Bayesian logic. The SDK is available on our website for everyone to use.
