The Ruhr-Universität Bochum is one of the leading research universities. The university draws its strengths from both the diversity and the proximity of scientific and engineering disciplines on a single, coherent campus. This highly dynamic setting enables students and researchers to work across traditional boundaries of academic subjects and faculties.

Over the past decade, the digital life of most people has moved from stationary devices such as desktop computers to computationally powerful mobile devices, such as smartphones, tablets or smartwatches. Not only do these devices bring a new level of convenience for users, they are also much more vulnerable to attacks that compromise the confidentiality of users’ private data - as revealed by whistleblower Edward Snowden’s global surveillance disclosures.

The focus of this special project is on security evaluation of IoT devices and associated network.

Your tasks:

- Set up a test-bed running on  Azure Sphere platform
- Evaluation of the security and privacy guarantees provided by the Azure Sphere OS
- Development of testing methods for IoT apps
