EU Projekt FutureTrust Tablet Handy Laptop (EN)
A tablet, a smartphone and a laptop


In collaboration with international partners, a team at the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Information Technology is developing secure and, at the same time, user-friendly online identification.

The EU project FutureTrust works on making online identification more secure. In addition, it should be easier for users to prove their identity on the Internet. Fake profiles and fraud can thus be prevented. The team of researchers is developing internationally valid identification systems that shall be easily accessible to anyone. Under the leadership of Professor Jörg Schwenk, RUB academics in the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Information Technology are working with international research institutions and companies to do this. The project is being funded with over 6 million euros by the EU until 2019.
