The task is to design and implement a radmomization concept for Rust compilation
This is a general topic that would study aspects related to biases that humans have regarding privacy. Many interesting things can be done here, such as studying users and their privacy preferences, focusing on a specific type of application in IoT, maybe looking at cognitive models, and focusing on biases, of course. This is a topic at the intersection of privacy and psychology.
Ask for discussions with the supervisor for more information or variations of the project. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange an appointment at the 9th floor.
Semantic Attribute Based Access Control (SABAC) – Developing an Access Control solution for IoT Gateways applied to Smart Home Care
The last decade has seen the emerge of data processing systems that specializes to process data “in flight”, as opposed to regular database systems where data to be processed is mainly stored on disk. This class systems, i.e, Complex Event Processing (CEP) and Data Stream Processing Systems (DSMSs) like [1,2,3] receive data as streams from their sources (health sensors, web click streams, etc.), and process the data while it flows through memory. In modern computing architectures, like cloud and IoT platforms with several heterogenous devices, we can achieve higher performance by distributing the processing among connected devices. However, this task – if we try to achieve the highest possible performance, is complex. Reasons being the unique characteristics of the streams (rate), the structure and complexity of the queries (one or more stream operators), and the interplay between the system and the underlying network.
The motivation for the centre is to link and harmonize, with the best possible synergy effect, the activities within IoT of the participating organizations:

The next frontier for innovation in the area of Internet of Things (IoT) is the creation of smart spaces such as smart cities, buildings , energy , and health. The main goal of the DILUTE project is to enable development of software services for such systems with particular support for scalability and dynamicity. Software services developed for such systems are distributed over a wide range of computing devices from resource-constrained IoT devices, to network routers (i.e., fog nodes) and the Cloud.
The CPS Lab focuses on a number of Enabling Technologies and their Applications having the physical organization divided into several Spaces pursuing the following goals:
(A) Provide a hands-on opportunity to several IFI courses taught at BSc and MSc levels, and MSc projects, inside the topics covered by this Lab. The topics of CPS Lab are meant to complement existing Lab initiatives at IFI and elsewhere, as far as we are aware of them (e.g., the Smart Grid lab of NTNU).
(B) Provide an open space for various MSc Topics offered at IFI by the applicants and others that want to use the Lab.
(C) Provide a platform for Industry to interact directly with IFI students by providing concrete problems through the Lab (e.g., as devices that need some form of investigation).
The future electricity network is based on components, which are state-of-the-art from some years back in time. As an example, the SCADA system consists of network interfaces, browser sessions..., which all can be hacked using standard vulnerabilities.
Previous work has established a Multi-Metrics (MM) Method for the analysis of measurable security and privacy. This MM approach is used in a.o. UNIK4750, and described more in IoTSec:T1.2. Some challenges of the method are related to the choice of metrics describing security functionality and their impact of the system. A further potential weakness is the dependency of system components, called "interconnection".
Embedded Systems (ES) becomes increasingly popular in modern times. This popularity increases the importance of the security for these systems. The reliable evaluation of the ES`s security is considered as a crucial requirement for the enhancement of its security.
The Consumer Services of Norway (Forbrukerrådet) have established a report on privacy in Apps "App-Fail". In there they have found breach of privacy by apps. They identified a lack of "understandable privacy" as the main challenge.
The electric grid is undergoing changes. Natural resources like sun and wind contribute to the production of energy.
We have seen a variety of cities providing free wifi for their inhabitants. However, when providing the full Internet without authentication, you run the risk of criminal activities to happen using that free Wifi. When you run authentication, it makes access cumbersome. Thus, the idea is to provide free low-capacity Internet without authentication, which would allow you to only consume information (no file download, no gaming, no streaming/video). With the knowledge of risk assessment, the candidate should be able to evaluate the security of such an open access.
Within January 2019 all electricity customers in Norway will have to use smart meters. These smart meters will become part of the ”Avanserte Måle- og Styringssystemer” (Automatic Meter Systems - AMS), and include that users can have a better information on their electricity usage, a more accurate billing of their consumption and the opportunity for automatic controlling of the power consumption. Pilots have already been running at several places in Norway. Academia, Grid distributors, Industry, and Consumer Organisations have joined through the IoTSec.no initiative to discuss security and privacy related to the services and infrastructures in an AMS.
In this thesis, we are interested in the human aspect in security and privacy concerns in Internet of Things for smart grids. More precise, we will use case studies to find out exactly how humans can influence the security of the smart grid, and how humans perceive the privacy aspects.
