Student Projects

The list below contains some ideas for projects I could supervise, both for MSc and final year projects. The topics are within the areas of embedded security and analysis of real-world systems and therefore they are of relatively high technical complexity. The amount of chilli represents the level of difficulty of the project, 5 being the maximum which is only recommended for outstanding students (top 3 of the class) aiming for distinction/first. Within parenthesis there are the modules which are needed to do the project.

Security Analysis, Cryptanalysis, Reverse-engineering

Building, Programming

If you are interested in one of these topics, please contact me and outline very shortly why you selected a particular topic. Please do not put my name down as a supervisor without talking to me first.
