The Cloud Research Lab (Institut für Cloud Computing und IT-Sicherheit; IfCCITS) is part of the Faculty of Computer Science at Furtwangen University, Germany. We are currently doing research in the following topics: Cloud Computing, IT Security, Virtualization, HPC Cloud and Industry 4.0.

We are active in collaboration with companies such as Continental, doubleslash in developing future concepts and prototypes in the area of Industry 4.0, Cloud Computing and IT security. We head the BMBF projects, FHProFunt and are participating in an EU FP7 project.

Overview slides: German, English

Head of the IfCCITs: Prof. Dr. Christoph Reich (Faculty: Computer Science)

We are a member of the Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP).
