Open Position: Student Researchers / Developers in Cybersecurity

The Cybersecurity research group (https://cybersecurityresearch.at/), headed by Prof. Elisabeth Oswald, is a relatively new group established in Austria’s sunny south. The group currently features a diverse range of members (from France, Iran, India, and China).

Current members work on topics such as leakage profiling, advanced leakage simulators, attacks (utilizing deep learning), statistical foundations, and hardware aspects of side channels. The group receives funding from the ERC, as well as local funding, and thus offers a supportive research environment (both financially as well as from a human perspective).

The group is looking for support with its ongoing projects via paid student researchers. You could work for us some months, e.g. during the summer (via an internship), or join us for longer (only part-time). We consider students both on bachelor and master courses,provided they are in the areas of computer science, computer engineering, mathematics (if it includes some programming), or statistics/data science (provided you can at least do some scripting).

You do not need to be based in Klagenfurt, working from home is possible.

The projects that we are looking to support require skills in (either)

  • compilers/languages to support the secure implementation of cryptographic primitives, including the use of formal verification tools,
  • machine/deep learning
  • secure implementations (low-level programming, e.g. ARM assembly, RISC-V assembly)
  • software development (C++)

You will work with young scientists from across the globe (the current group members are from France, Iran, India and China), so good English language skills are vital too.

We will appoint multiple researchers, and the starting date is flexible.  Applications will be considered on a rolling basis. To apply please send a brief motivation letter, your CV, and transcripts of records of your MSc/BSc to the contact below.

The rates will depend on your highest level of education: they are at € 1.073,10 per month for a part-time employment.

Please contact Elisabeth [dot] Oswald [at] aau [dot] at for informal inquiries and to submit your application.

PhD Students in Cybersecurity wanted!

The Cybersecurity Research Group – hosted at the university’s Digital Age Research Center (D!ARC) – is seeking to fill the post of a Phd-student within the area of Side Channel Resistent Embedded Systems.

The Cybersecurity Research group has been established with a clear interest in finding and eliminating information leaks in the context of embedded devices (they often exhibit a number of so called side channels). In this particular setting, the research team – led by Prof. Elisabeth Oswald – has developed a range of techniques that integrate well in a typical software flow and make leakage information transparent to a developer.

Currently, the group consists of one further lecturer, three postdocs, and two further PhD students who work in the areas of cryptography, statistical machine learning, embedded security, artificial intelligence and deep learning as well as crypto engineering.

The purpose of this studentship is to build on the existing work and add novel ideas including the automated tracing of leaks from lower-level code representations to the description in a higher-level language, the development of code transformation techniques to mitigate leaks automatically, etc. The successful applicant will work closely with Prof. Oswald and will develop into a researcher/engineer with a profound understanding of the challenges of leakage resilient development.

Requirements:

✓ Master’s level qualification in informatics, mathematics or other technical sciences
✓ strong background in embedded systems
✓ some background in low level programming and embedded systems
✓ Very good language skills in English (German optional)
✓ Willingness to work within an international team

The vacancy shall be filled as soon as possible.
If you are interested in this opportunity please consider applying with your CV and a motivational letter to elisabeth [dot] oswald [at] aau [dot] at

Tool-assisted Fault Discovery in Knowledge Bases: A Novel Approach from Klagenfurt

Artificial intelligence systems — for instance, in biomedicine — are often based on knowledge bases, which store expert knowledge in machine readable form. Unfortunately, it is not uncommon that mistakes creep in while knowledge bases are created. Such mistakes can have serious consequences, for example, if the system suggests a wrong medication for a patient. Finding such faults is, however, a very hard task, often just because of the sheer size of the knowledge bases.

For this reason, a team of researchers from the Department of Applied Informatics has developed the “OntoDebug” tool, which is used by people from all over the world. In an article that was recently published in the prestigious “Knowledge-Based Systems” journal, the usefulness of this tool could be scientifically validated by means of several user studies. In particular, it was shown that the effort needed for the discovery of faults in knowledge bases is significantly reduced when OntoDebug is used.

Topic for a Master Thesis in Information Management

The following topic is offered at the Department of Applied Informatics:

“Analysis and design of an information and communication platform based on Confluence”

Web-based tools for information collection, information exchange and communication are nowadays common in many organisations. Typical examples are knowledge management systems, corporate wikis, discussion forums or file exchange systems.

Smaller companies are, however, often confronted with the problem that commercial solutions offer too much functionality for the planned use; at the same time, these system can only be adapted to the organisational requirements with some effort.

In the context of the master thesis the software system “Confluence” by the company Atlassian will be examined regarding its usability and applicability for a start-up company in the area of political and economic strategy development and communication. The expected result of the master thesis is a study of possible applications, limitations and alternatives to the mentioned software solution.

The topic is suitable for students of Information Management. Alternatively, the topic can also be worked on in the frame of  a “Praxis” (Section 6.1 of the curriculum).

For further information, please contact Prof. Dietmar Jannach, Research Group Information Systems.

Habilitation Colloquium Dr. Erich Teppan

The Institute for Applied Computer Science, Research Group Intelligent Systems and Business Informatics invites you to the habilitation colloquium of Dr. Erich Teppan.

Time: Thursday, 18 January 2018, Start: 14:30 s. t.

Place: AAU, HS 2

Abstract: Constraint answer set programming (CASP) is a family of hybrid approaches integrating answer set programming (ASP) and constraint programming (CP). These hybrid approaches have already proven to be successful in various domains. In this talk the approach of heuristic CASP (HCASP) is presented. In HCASP, ASP is not only used for expressing constraint satisfaction problems (CSPs) to be solved by a CP solver, but also for the encoding of search heuristics that are exploited by the CP solver. In particular, the HCASP solver ASCASS (A Simple Constraint Answer Set Solver), which provides novel methods for defining and exploiting search heuristics, is presented.
