Description of the workplace
The doctoral student will be working in the Cryptography, Privacy and Security Lab. The work will primarily be funded through WASP and the activities and courses in WASP are mandatory for the WASP PhD students. Senior researchers will be active in the project and provide supervision.
The research project is in the area of cryptology and includes an investigation into the research topic of implementation security within post-quantum cryptography, particularly in the context of embedded software.
The main duties of doctoral students are to devote themselves to their research studies which includes participating in research projects and third cycle courses. The work duties will also include teaching and other departmental duties (no more than 20%).
Detailed description of the work duties:
- Research on the analysis of code-based and lattice-based cryptographic primitives and implementations through side-channel attacks and
- Developing attacks and various protection methods and their security evalutions.
