We are looking for 2 PhD students at the Department of Computer Science and Mathematics of the Eindhoven University of Technology. The candidates will work in the Security group on the APPSTACLE project. The positions can be transformed in PostDoc positions if suitable candidates apply.
Today there exist many individual systems and services developed for special purposes and all of them require a specific plug-in equipment and system. They have been developed in silos without taking into account key evolution in the IT world, as for example the power of open ecosystems and the growing potential of cloud computing. To prevent this issue in the automotive domain and to meet the increasingly complex challenges of the automobile and other transportation vehicles, an integrated sustainable open solution is needed.
APPSTACLE aims to establish and exploit an integrated ecosystem solution in the context of automotive industry. A modular, interoperable platform based on open standards and protocols for application developers would open new business opportunities for existing providers but at the same time introduce a business platform for application developers and traditional car manufacturers. The results will make benefits for cars and transportation vehicles that are connected to in-vehicle interfaces (OBD, CAN...), have wireless interface adapters, and include modular platform services that connect in-car data and Internet to the applications via open application programming interfaces. These all-together enable smart driving, security and safety, use of social media, on-the-air updates and services, entertainment applications, and collecting data from transportation experiences in many different levels.
Within the APPSTACLE project, one PhD student will focus on authorization solutions for car2infrastructure communication, whereas the goal of the other PhD student is to investigate solutions for increasing the security of in-vehicle communications by developing anomaly detection techniques capable of identifying deviations in device communication patterns.
An extensive project description is available on request.
