CAST Award IT Security 2002

The goal of the Competence Center for Applied Security Technology (CAST Forum) is to meet the growing importance of IT Security in all branches of business and areas of public administration, and to further develop this importance. One of the Forum's tasks is to promote innovative security solutions that will affect the European market, as well as educating about IT Security for all careers and areas of activity. In this connection, the promotion and support of education is of particular importance.

The members of the CAST Form would like to promote innovations with the CAST Award and award exceptional work in the field of IT Security. The award is being conferred for the second time. Students and apprentices in all German universities and companies are eligible to enter. Papers considered are final papers or diploma theses written and completed between January 2001 and August 2002.

The papers contained innovative ideas, concepts and implementations in the field of IT Security. Prize money in the amount of 18,000 euros were awarded.
