Cyber security is the assessment of, responding to and monitoring of the security of the cyberspace. It is difficult to pin down to one single scientific discipline, but rather relates to a number of domains and fields such as physical security, network security, security assessment frameworks and the human element.
Traditionally, formal methods have been used to analyse security protocols. This project will consider modelling various security vulnerabilities/attacks and using these to analyse the best form of defence against such attacks.
Surrey Centre for Cyber Security (SCCS) and Surrey Space Centre (SSC) at the University of Surrey invite applications for a fully-funded PhD studentship in Satellite System Security to work on an industry-funded research project TargetSat.
