This Master’s specialisation will teach you how to contribute in the design of new security systems. You’ll be able to draw up the security requirements of an application and discover where possible weaknesses lie. It covers a broad range of topics that is important for computer security, such as computer science (software, computer networks, and hardware, especially smart-cards and RFID), but also mathematical aspects (cryptography and security protocols), as well as organisational and management issues, legal aspects, and societal issues (in particular privacy).

Over the last decade, Radboud University has made a name for itself in this field both in and outside the country. The Digital Security Group revealed security flaws in the chip-card used for public transport smart cards like the London Oyster and the Dutch OV-chipkaart. Researchers of our group also found security vulnerabilities in commonly used car immobiliser systems.

Currently, we're leading the development of the IRMA card, an ID card that will better protect users' personal data against misuse, and the Networking and Cryptography library (NaCl), a new easy-to-use, high-speed and high-security software library.

Waarom aan de Radboud Universiteit?

Radboud University's research in Data Security is unique in its broad range. It ranges from legal and privacy aspects, security analyses of existing systems, the design and realisation of new systems, applied cryptography, down to hardware aspects of smartcards and RFID chips. Internationally, we're leading in research on smartcards and privacy-friendly identity management.
  • You will be taught by many of the best cyber security experts in the world.
  • Our curriculum is unique its broad range, with a selection of topics which range from hardware security to security of AI. The focus of this specialisation lies in the technical core areas of cyber security like software security, hardware security, network security, and cryptography. Additionally, it includes courses on privacy and legal and organisational aspects of information security.
  • Internationally, we’re leading the cryptographic algorithm design; with our designs being selected as NIST standards or competing as finalists in ongoing NIST competitions.
  • Education is closely connected to research at the Privacy & Identity Lab, where privacy and identity are researched from a legal, technical, and social perspective.
  • The job opportunities are excellent: some of our students get offered jobs before they have even graduated and almost all of our graduates have positions within six months after graduating.
