[Other] Erasmus+ grant for the SecTech project

The Erasmus+ project “Innovation and Excellence in Cyber-security teaching in Higher Education (SecTech)” has been granted for funding by EU. NTNU participates in this project with Prof. Danilo Gligoroski and Prof. Sokratis Katsikas from the Department of Information Security and Communication Technology (IIK).

About the project:
The SecTech project is a project between 7 European universities: Luxembourg Institute of Science and Technology (coordinator), University of Oulu - Finland, University of Regensburg - Germany, Katholike Universiteit Leuven - Belgium, Norwegian University of Science and Technology - Norway, University of Plymouth - UK, and University of Vienna - Austria.
The activities of this project will revolve around the fulfilment of the following objectives:

  • Jointly develop Cyber-Security related teaching and training materials at Masters and PhD level.
  • Create within each partner institution, a centre for cyber-security teaching and awareness competences with curriculum encompassing area of expertise of each partner institution.
  • Support decision makers in the area of higher education with a set of recommendation on how to improve the quality of teaching in cyber-security.
  • Adopt an online collaborative and interactive tool for delivering the courses to remote students.

[PhD graduation] Congratulations to Joakim Klemets

Joakim Klemets successfully completed his trial lecture and PhD thesis defence on Fri Dec 16 2016 and will be awarded the degree of Doctor of Philosophy (Telematics).

The title of his thesis is "Support for nurses’ strategies to handle (un)wanted nurse calls: a design science approach" and the given topic for his trial lecture was "Involving users in IT-design: Differences between design science, participatory design and user-centered design and the methodological challenges of combining them".

The following committee had been appointed to evaluate her thesis, trial lecture and defence:

  • Assoc. Prof. Claus Bossen, Aarhus Universitet
  • Assoc. Prof. Mariann Fossum, University of Agder, Grimstad
  • Prof. Finn Arve Aagesen, Department of Telematics, NTNU

Joakim Klemets carried out his PhD work at the Department of Telematics, NTNU. His main supervisor was Prof. Pieter Jelle Toussaint.

[Open position] PhD research fellowship position in policy-based networked applications and service configuration

The Department of Telematics invites applications for PhD research fellowship position in policy-based networked applications and service configuration.

The growth in Internet's size, number of dynamic services and interdependencies between actors and services implies more complex configuration and the need for dynamic real-time configuration. Dedicated service and network management applications are required to automate the complicated and dynamic configuration present in to-days systems. Such systems need business models as well as interoperable data models of network topology, network services and policy rules to support the design, deployment, configuration and maintenance of network services. New architecture concepts like the Network Function Virtualization (NFV) shift the emphasis towards the dynamic mapping of services. One response to this challenge is the IETF framework SUPA (Simplified Use of Policy Abstractions). The project should focus on the design, implementation and experimentation with a framework for network service configuration. Example services are Instant VPN (Virtual Private Network), VPC (Virtualized Private Cloud) and VSP (Virtual Service Provider). Another focus will be to design suitable business models and to model the economic business relations between the various actors in this ecosystem

Application deadline: Feb 15, 2017

[Open position] PhD research fellowship position in secure networking technologies

The Department of Telematics invites applications for PhD research fellowship position in secure networking technologies.

The researcher will work on a project entitled “Securing emerging network technologies with homomorphic encryption”. The overall aim of the project is to design methods for secure processing of network data in emerging networks using practical variants of homomorphic encryption. Recent advances in cryptography will be applied to secure the virtualization of the ICT infrastructure (such as “cloud” processing and storage) and new flexible networking technologies such as software defined networks (SDN) and network function virtualization (NFV). Work tasks will include: analysis of suitable network functions for homomorphic processing; analysis of practical homomorphic encryption algorithms; secure protocol design and analysis; and experimental implementations.

Application deadline: Feb 1, 2017
