SECURITY AND PRIVACY IN AN INTERNET OF THINGS ENVIRONMENT (SPITE)

 

The imec-DistriNet research group is part of the Department of Computer Science at the KU Leuven and part of the imec High Impact Initiative Distributed Trust. The general domain of expertise and innovation of DistriNet is the development of open, distributed object support platforms for advanced applications. The research is always application driven and is often conducted in close collaboration with industry.


imec-DistriNet was founded in 1984 and has built up experience and expertise in system software for distributed systems since. The research has expanded from pure distributed operating systems to support platforms for distributed applications. Currently the DistriNet group works on a wide range of problems involving computer networks, middleware, distributed systems, embedded systems, multi-agent systems, security and Internet middleware.

Project

The SBO SPITE-project (Security and Privacy in a Internet-of-Things Environment) aims at finding appropriate solutions for realizing advanced access control in an Internet-of-Things (IoT) setting. The new mechanisms will allow for increased  flexibility, adaptability and security by making use of IoT devices to ’trustworthily’ determine the user’s context, and based on this context adapting the required authentication procedure and the prevailing authorization rules. Moreover, some of the solutions can be applied to protect a subset of the IoT devices managed by the user.
 

Profile

We are looking for motivated PhD candidates in the possession of a Master degree in computer science or similar. You need to have sufficient knowledge of IT security and/or privacy-protection techniques (i.e. you should have received credits for at least one course on this topic). Applications should contain a CV, a cover letter describing research interests and goals, publications (if available), names and contact information for up to three references (letters of recommendation can be included to strengthen further the application).

 

Offer

Full-time employment as a doctoral student starting Sep 1 (or earlier) for a period of one year with renewal after positive evaluation. In addition you are required to start the Arenberg Doctoral School program and supervise students during the lab/exercise sessions of the Bachelor and/or Master in Engineering Science or Informatics.
