Message to students
Students are educated in various areas of Security, including theoretical aspects like cryptography and more practical aspects like implementations including software and hardware. Students are expected to work individually and in groups, and therefore good communication skill is expected.
Research topics/projects
Security protocols and systems involving software and hardware, security and privacy in modern education (blended-learning) systems, secure multiparty computation in cloud and other environments, security is smartgrid networks, security technology in computer forensics.

I would like to recruit a PhD student starting Sep 2013, basically the project is about usage of cryptographic powers of PC, ARM, intelligent mobile, and microcontrollers. One emphasis is the study and design of different security protocols (like authentication and data-mining in e-learning, smartgrid network, cloud services) that can make use of the hardware properties to achieve advanced and new security requirements.
