Rethinking the hardware-software interface for secure internet of things
Building on our highly successful research on rethinking the hardware-software interface for application/server- class 64-bit processors (see: http://www.cl.cam.ac.uk/research/security/ctsrd/), we wish to investigate the applicability of these security techniques to 32-bit IoT processors like the ARM Cortex M series. The research could be more hardware focused, more software focused or a mixture of the two depending on the interests and abilities of the candidate. This work is in collaboration with ARM Ltd.
This funding is from EPSRC (UK funding agency), an industry linked award with ARM Ltd. EPSRC restrict full funding to UK residents or fees-only funding for EU residents. For further details, see: https://www.epsrc.ac.uk/skills/students/coll/icase/intro/
