Project Description

Your task as a PhD student will be to conduct world-class research in cyber-physical security as part of the WASP research program. The project is about the first encounter problem, which is how to ensure that two entities that have previously not interacted with each other can trust each other’s information. This is both a deep and relevant problem in today’s connected society. Addressing this problem requires new solutions for decentralized trust management where techniques such as remote attestation and blockchains can be used. Moreover, it requires the ability to formally reason about trust and security in decentralized systems.

Your workplace

You will belong to the research laboratory RTSLAB in the Software and Systems (SaS) Division within the Department of Computer and Information Science (IDA) at Linköpings University. We conduct research in the areas of dependability, security and resource allocation in distributed systems.
