PhD student position in cyber security, Guildford (UK)

Deadline: Monday 1 April 2019

An exciting PhD position is now open. It will be jointly hosted at the Surrey Centre for Cyber Security (SCCS), a GCHQ-recognised 'Academic Centre of Excellence in Cyber Security Research', and Surrey's 5G Innovation Center (5GIC). @topic: This PhD is called "5GTech-Sec: Security analysis of systems using emerging 5G Technologies".

5GTech-Sec will undertake the formal security & privacy analysis of 5G-systems against 5G-specific security and privacy risks: e.g., threats stemming from reconfigurable networks, arbitrary number of connections to a small cell, etc. In other words, this a project to develop formal models, verification mechanisms and tools that are particularly suited for the verification of 5G systems. These will be primarily based on developing new techniques based on model checking of non-classical logics, such as temporal-epistemic logics, as well as theorem proving suited to security-driven theories. To this end, 5GTech-Sec will focus on: (1) capturing the arbitrary-size of the 5G systems; (2) encoding new threats stemming specifically from the novelty of 5G designs (e.g., reconfigurable networks and topologies); (3) analysing privacy properties.
