Post-Doc, Aalto University, Department of Information and Computer Science, Espoo, Finland
New extensions of linear and differential cryptanalysis methods for symmetric key ciphers will be investigated with special attention to distribution based distinguishers. The general goal would be to develop new and more accurate design criteria for symmetric key ciphers and their key scheduling algorithms. The specific research goals will be adjusted according to the interests of the Post-Doc.
The start of the position is negotiable. Also late applications can be taken into consideration.
Postdoc in Game Theoretic Privacy-Preservation applied to Data Mining, Loughborough University, UK
Funded by the UK EPSRC and Ministry of Defence (MOD) Defence Science & Technology Laboratory (DSTL), this project focuses on the problem setting where coalition parties, each owning a large set of data, desire to discover new knowledge when they collaborate to jointly process all the datasets; while ensuring that each individual dataset is not revealed to the other parties. This is expected to involve homomorphic encryption and multi-party computation.
Applicants with a PhD in cryptography, privacy preservation, game theory, data mining or optimization are encouraged to apply.
