Our publications

At Trustworks, we believe that a supreme quality of work can only be delivered through a well founded education combined with practical experience and a passion for details. For us, this includes not only staying at the state-of-the-art in security research, but also extending it whenever possible. In the following, we provide a list of research publications that have been made by Trustworks members in conjunction with academic partners.
