 PhD Candidate in Security and Privacy in Network Communication at SnT, University of Luxembourg

  • Ref: R-STR-5007-00-Z
  • Fixed Term Contract up to 3 years in total, pending satisfaction of progress milestones (CDD), on full time basis (40hrs/week).
  • Number of positions: 2

The Interdisciplinary Centre for Security, Reliability and Trust (SnT) at University of Luxembourg is carrying out interdisciplinary research in secure, reliable and trustworthy ICT systems and services, often in collaboration with industrial, governmental or international partners. SnT is active in several international research projects funded by the EU H2020 and the European Space Agency.

The Centre is rapidly expanding its research activities and is seeking highly motivated Junior Researcher/PhD candidates who wish to pursue research in close cooperation with our partners. For further information, you may check: www.securityandtrust.lu and https://secan-lab.uni.lu/.

Your Role

We seek a highly skilled doctoral student to work in the domain of computer science with strong focus on security and privacy in distributed systems, network communication. Traditional secure communication systems still leak information about the routing of messages in the network (who is talking to whom, time and volume of data transmitted, chat initiation and replies, on-line presence) that may be used by adversaries to gain intelligence. Making use of this information, called traffic analysis, has been known and practiced for many years by military and intelligence agencies. Now it is also a common tool for hackers, trying to probe networks, to discover their topology and vulnerabilities, as well as fraudsters that attempt to extract personal data to trick individuals or perform identity theft. Based on our work in this domain published in NDSS 2016 and WPES 2011, our goal will be to analyze the susceptibility of existing privacy-preserving routing protocols with respect to traffic analysis and to design and analyze appropriate countermeasures taking into account quality-of-service, scalability, and legal requirements.

For further information, please contact: andriy.panchenko@uni.lu
