Talk by CYSEC-PI Prof. Christian Reuter at HSFK Annual Conference 2018: Verification in Crisis, the Crisis of Verification


New Technology as a Hurdle to and an Enabler of Verification in Arms Control

From the perspective of arms control, modern technology is both a curse and a blessing. On one hand, many new technologies can be used to limit proliferation of critical material or components or to help verify existing arms control arrangements. On the other hand, new technologies make it easier to hide critical capabilities or to bypass existing arms control regimes. The conference brings together ex­perts from the fields of weapons of mass destruction, conventional armament and emerging technologies will debate problems and chances of latest high-tech, with a particular, yet not exclusive view on information technology, in their respective field to inspire each other to find common solutions to similar problems.

Prof. Reuter held a talk in the Panel „Emerging Technologies and the Impact of Software“.

The conference took place September 21-22, 2018 in Frankfurt, Germany.
