About the Project
The Cybersecurity Research group at AAU has been newly established by Prof. Elisabeth Oswald, whose interest is that of finding and eliminating such information leaks in the context of embedded devices (they often exhibit a number of so called side channels). In this particular setting, the research team by Prof. Oswald has developed a range of techniques that integrate well in a typical software flow and make leakage information transparent to a developer.
The purpose of this studentship is to build on the existing work and add novel ideas including the automated tracing of leaks from lower level code representations to the description in a higher level language, the development of code transformation techniques to mitigate leaks automatically, etc. The successful applicant will work closely with Prof. Oswald and will develop into a researcher/engineer with a profound understanding of the challenges of leakage resilient development.
The student will be embedded in the Cybersecurity research group, which currently consists of one further lecturer, two postdocs, and three further incoming PhD students who work in the areas of crypto, statistical machine learning, embedded security, AI and deep learning and crypto engineering. There will be opportunities to get involved in teaching.
