Chalmers University of Technology - Sweden
Ph.D. student

We are looking for an excellent, motivated, self-driven doctoral student to work in the area of information security and cryptography. The position is for up to five years at the Department of Computer Science and Engineering, within the group of Prof. Katerina Mitrokotsa who is doing research in cryptographic protocols that guarantee reliable authentication, privacy-preservation and verifiable delegation of computation. The topic of this project is focusing on investigating security and privacy issues for resource-constrained devices (e.g., sensors) that rely on external untrusted servers in order to perform computations. More precisely, the student shall be working on investigating efficient authentication and verifiable delegation of computation mechanisms that provide: i) provable security guarantees, and ii) rigorous privacy guarantees. The overall aim of the PhD position will be to design and evaluate cryptographically reliable and privacy-preserving authentication and verifiable delegation of computation protocols. The research shall also consider the case where multiple clients outsource jointly computations to untrusted cloud servers. Experience in one or more domains such as cryptography, design of protocols, secure multi-party computation and differential privacy is beneficial. Mathematical maturity is essential.

The PhD student will be supervised by Prof. Katerina Mitrokotsa: http://www.cse.chalmers.se/~aikmitr/

Full-time temporary employment. PhD student positions are limited to five years. Starting salary is 27,835 SEK a month before tax. The position is intended to start in Sept 2017.

The consortium is composed of the LIP6 (Univ. Paris 6) and the CEA.

The post-doc work will be focus on the security analysis of the code generated with the Prosecco flow according to different use cases (verify pin, AES, bootloader) and different threats (SCA, FA). This analysis will be conducted with state-of-the-art side channel and fault injection benches. Some intermediate security evaluations will also be conducted with "low cost" equipment setups. This work will imply a close interaction with the other teams. The retained candidate will bring to other tasks of the project a central expertise about physical attacks and countermeasures.

University College London
PhD studentship

The rise of decentralized networks, such as Tor and cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin, has enabled numerous applications, and these technologies offer the potential to enable many more. One could also argue, however, that they have enabled new types of crime. For example, the number of underground markets selling drugs and other illicit goods, such as Silk Road, has grown enormously after the introduction of Bitcoin (and they also rely on the use of Tor). Attacks such as ransomware also seem to some extent impossible to carry out without the use of these technologies.

In order to remove any regulatory obstacles to the adoption of the positive applications of these technologies, it is therefore important to address these negative applications and convince regulators they can be dealt with appropriately. To achieve this, we will develop (1) new heuristics for identifying relationships in a cryptocurrency ecosystem; (2) tools for collecting and analyzing data from underground markets; and (3) new techniques to ensure that honest users continue to maintain their privacy. Eventually, these will all be incorporated into a microservice architecture that provides a forensic tool.

This project is funded by an EU H2020 grant, and will be carried out with partners across Europe. The ideal candidate will have a strong degree in Computer Science, Mathematics, or a related MSc course, and some proficiency with cryptography, machine learning, and/or data analytics.

Multi-Physical Unclonable Function (PUF) Designs & Architectures -

This research will investigate the design of novel Physical Unclonable Functions, which exploit random variations found in the silicon used in the manufacture of electronic chips as an inherently lightweight means to uniquely identify and authenticate IoT devices.The main aims of the proposed research are:

• To investigate novel software-based PUF designs for an embedded micro-controller (MCU) in addition to a multi-PUF design based on combining software and/or hardware PUFs.

• To investigate methods to accurately evaluate the entropy offered by a PUF primitive, as current metrics vary widely and can depend on how the PUF is to be subsequently used.

• To study the use of PUFs in higher level protocols.

This is a GCHQ-sponsored PhD studentship; therefore, only UK nationals are eligible for this funding.
