Evaluation of the Component`s Interconnection Impact on the System Security

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".

Interconnection between the components for a given system has an impact on the security level of this system. In this thesis, the student will investigated and apply a proposed solution for the evaluation of this impact and the integration of it into system`s security level. For applying the proposed solution the student will develop new functionalities for already initiated framework.


Please visit the project link and for more information or variations of the project contact one of the supervisors.

Various paths can be explored and we decide about it together with the student.

This thesis can be interacting with the ongoing project IoTSec -Security in IoT for Smart Grids.
