Research at the Department of Information Security and Communication Technology
The research at our department is connected to our laboratories.
Focus on biometric research covering various physiological and behavioral biometrics including recognition of face in 2D and 3D, fingerprint, finger vein, ear, signature, gait, keystroke and gesture in addition to dental biometrics and mouse dynamics.
Bridges information and cyber security related research including biometics, cyber defence, critical infrasturcture protection, digital forensics, E-health and welfare security, and information security management.
Focuses on secure telecommunications and networked services with functionality for authenticity, confidentiality, integrity, availability, privacy, and verifiability of communications.
NTNU Internet of Things (NINOT) Laboratory
Focuses on research and development of technologies supporting the engineering and deployment of systems based on the Internet of Things with particular focus on functional correctness, robustness, safety, efficiency, and the users security and privacy.
Focuses on quantifying dependability and performance in complex digital ecosystems with applications in smart grids, clouds, communication systems, transportation, healthcare, and financial systems.
Focuses on research and development of technologies to support safe, efficient, secure, and environment-friendly transportation systems with particular emphasis on system engineering and networking aspects.
NTNU Digital Forensics Group
Focuses on research and development of advanced computational methods to establish and prove the scientific basis of forensic investigative procedures, with the objective to support forensic examiners in their daily casework.

Supervised doctorates are the highest degrees that the University awards for research. The research is carried out under the immediate supervision of staff members. The education and training provided result in graduates with the capacity to conduct independent research that is both original and of high international quality.
For students enrolled in Communication Technology, the department also offers an integrated PhD starting from the 4th study year.
