Master Thesis: Security for Tiny IoT Devices

We are looking for a dedicated master’s student 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. This thesis targets security for devices that do not have their own power source but run on energy harvested from the environment. In particular, the thesis will look into novel attacks on the energy harvesting of such devices.


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

Who are you?
