In Search of a Student Assistant (8h/week)!

The Institute of Applied Computer Science is looking for a student assistant for 8h/week (starting on 1.March 2018).

The goal is the re-engineering of the algorithm visualization tool go2algo (current version at jar) and a modularization in which individual algorithms can be quickly added or removed.

The range of functions should grow with the progress of the lecture.

The topic can also be adapted towards software practice/Bachelor thesis  (aprox. 400€ per month).

Expected knowledge: German, SWE, Java and A&D

If you are interested, please contact peter [dot] schartner [at] aau [dot] at .

Project Semester at CERBERUS

Master students at the Institute for Applied Computer Science (AINF) have the opportunity to do their project semester as part of a national or international research project.

Thomas Grafenauer is currently working within his project semester on CERBERUS, a FFG/KIRAS project dealing with the protection of critical infrastructure (KIs).

Based on the information on critical infrastructure objects collected by the public agencies, the security relevant data is structurally prepared and imported in a developed data model in the course of the CERBERUS project. This enables to logically represent the interdependencies and cascading effects in an interdependency model. This interdependency model can be used to identify, evaluate and simulate possible cascade effects. The simulation is done in “Omnet++”, an event simulation tool. With the help of the simulation, the effects of the cascade effect are made visible, enabling targeted preventive measures to be taken at the most critical points of the network.

Learn hacking in a protected environment: Come to the Security Lab on 26.01

What happens in a hacker attack and how can such an attack be detected ?

This know-how is practically indispensable for students of computer science and information management. But how and where can one learn this legally?

On Friday, 26.1.2018 you have the possibility of guided LIVE hacking in a protected environment (room E 1.37,  in the Security Lab from 09.00-17.00h; language of instruction: German).

Attention, limited number of participants! Therefore register (if not already done) by e-mail  to peter [dot] schartner [at] aau [dot] at.

Thanks to the ÖH students’ representatives, catering is also provided!
