The Resilient Information Systems Security Group (RISS) in the Department of Computing at Imperial College London is seeking a Research Associate to work in the area of Cybersecurity and Resilience of the Internet of Things. Placed within the context of the RACE project (Responding to Attacks and Compromise at the Edge) this work aims to develop methods to enable IoT systems to react to attacks and adapt in order to continue to operate even after being partially compromised.
The work is articulated into four broad themes: understanding attacks and mitigation strategies, maintaining an adequate representation of risk to the other parts of the system by modelling how attacks can propagate, estimating the impact of compromise upon the functionality of the system and selecting adaptation strategies taking into account trade-offs between minimising disruption to the system operation and functionality provided and minimising the risk to the other parts of the system.
The RACE project is part of the PETRAS National Centre of Excellence for IoT Systems Cybersecurity https://petras-iot.org and there will be opportunities to collaborate with other projects as well as with industrial partners. There will also be opportunities to collaborate with other researchers and PhD students in the RISS group working on a broad range of topics including cyber security, resilience and adversarial machine learning.
