Ph.D. Student position in Security and Privacy of IoT applications within the NEST-project CyberSecIT at KTH Royal Institute of Technology.
The doctoral student will contribute to the project WASP NEST CyberSecIT, a framework project conducted jointly with Chalmers University of Technology and Umeå University to explore the security and privacy of IoT applications, with the emphasis on software and automation. NESTs are flagship projects of the Wallenberg AI, Autonomous Systems and Software Program (WASP).
CyberSecIT’s ambition is to develop a practical, secure and privacy-enhancing solution for IoT applications. The doctoral student will conduct research in developing a novel decentralized platform for automated validation and secure deployment of IoT applications based on technologies such as fine-grained access control, code analysis, multi-party computation, and confidential computing. The doctoral student will also have the opportunity to apply the research results by building a demonstrator that showcases their potential in real-life contexts, in collaboration with Ericsson, ICA Gruppen, and the City of Stockholm.
