Since July 2020, the Chrome browser, by default, only transfers cookies from the website that users are currently visiting, restricting their scope to a same-site context. Cookies from third parties, on the other hand, will only be sent if the site operators explicitly allow this. These so-called SameSite cookie policies are intended to provide a more secure and privacy-preserving Web browsing experience and - as a nice side effect - make it more difficult for advertisers to track users across multiple pages. In a large-scale study of 500,000 websites, CISPA researcher Soheil Khodayari examined for the first time what the change in default cookie policies actually entails and what it means for site operators and users. He presented his paper "The State of the SameSite: Studying the Usage, Effectiveness, and Adequacy of SameSite Cookies" at the prestigious IEEE Symposium on Security and Privacy in San Francisco.
Cybersecurity is a young and fast-evolving area. As a Helmholtz Center for Information Security, CISPA is dedicated to cutting-edge foundational research combined with innovative application-oriented research in the areas of cybersecurity and privacy.
We are committed to the highest international academic standards and offer a world-class research environment that grants extensive resources to a wide range of researchers and that constitutes an attractive destination for the best talents and scientists from all countries.
CISPA PODCAST TL;DR
That text was way too long, so you couldn't bother to read it? We feel you! In TL;DR, CISPA's first podcast, we talk to researchers about their work on cybersecurity and artificial intelligence once a month and try to ask them exactly the same questions that you are asking yourself.
People from 38 nations work at CISPA. That's why you'll find conversations in both German and English in this feed.
Have fun listening!
CISPA Zine: composed of CISPA and magazine, derived from the idea of the "fanzine." These are mostly folded small magazines created by fans for fans on various topics. The CISPA Zine is published quarterly and keeps our staff, interested parties, and supporters up to date on all important developments at the Center.

Recruitment of highly talented students and young researchers in the fields of cybersecurity and privacy is a core element of CISPA's development and growth strategy. Finding the right people is very important to us. Maybe you're one of them!
Our goal is to hire, train and accompany future researchers in all stages of their scientific careers, to help them advance as learners, from bachelor's and master's degrees to doctorates and positions as young researchers at both postdoctoral and faculty level.
No matter if you’re just starting your career or already have experience, we want to offer all of you an inspiring, international and competitive, yet cooperative and above all enjoyable working environment for your research and education. We strongly believe that, here, you will be able to develop your full potential.
