Hello there!

MaxLab: Usable Security and Privacy Research at CISPA Helmholtz Center for Information Security in Saarbrücken, Germany


We are a research group at the CISPACISPA Helmholtz Center for Information Security focusing on human factors in computer security and privacy.

Most of our research focuses on the intersection between human behavior and technical security. We are working on making our digital world safer, more private, and easier to navigate for everyone. For this, we are working on a passwordless future, striving to strike a balance between users' security and usability needs, and supporting end-users in understanding and controlling the use of their data.
