Master Theses: Attack-Resistant IoT Networks

We are looking for dedicated master’s students to join us in the Connected Intelligence Unit at RISE.

The Connected Intelligence Unit is part of RISE Computer Science in Kista. The current research focus is on the Internet of Things. Among the group's key technologies are the Contiki operating system, uIP stack, ContikiRPL, SICSLoWPAN, and lightweight implementation of IPsec and DTLS. The unit conducts projects together with industry and academic partners from Sweden and across the world.

Thesis Description
The Internet of Things (IoT) is expected to enable applications of utmost societal value, such as energy-efficient buildings, smart cities, intelligent grids, and next-generation healthcare. One of the potential roadblocks for the IoT revolution is the lack of security. While there is a lot of progress on security for larger devices, we also need to consider security for the most resource-constrained devices. We have several theses in this project. Right now, the Thread protocol, an IPv6-based, low-power mesh networking technology for the Internet of Things, is gaining a lot of attention from industry including IKEA. The aim of this thesis is to investigate which other attacks on other relevant IoT protocols are relevant also for Thread.

Terms:

  • Start Time: As soon as possible
  • Scope: 30 hp
  • Location: RISE Computer Science, Kista, Stockholm

Who are you?
We expect you to have good programming skills in embedded, low-level C and knowledge of networking, in particular Internet protocols. An interest in security is also a prerequisite.
