Security Behaviours and Cybercrime (available)

Project background Cybersecurity is the practice of defending computers, servers, mobile devices, electronic systems, networks, and data from malicious attacks, in an ever increasingly complex threat landscape. These attacks constitute a variety of computer-enabled and computer-dependent crimes, broadly categorised as ‘cybercrime’. In order to be in a position to defend against these attacks and minimise … full description “Security Behaviours and Cybercrime (available)”

WebAssembly-based microarchitectural covert channel attacks: capabilities, proof-of-concept, and implications (completed)

WebAssembly-based microarchitectural covert channel attacks: capabilities, proof-of-concept, and implications   Microarchitectural covert channels are a threat to data confidentiality in multi-tenant environments (cloud platform, mobile phone, etc.). This type of leakage channel aims at tunnelling information across isolation boundaries (sandboxing, censorship, etc.) by exploiting timing variations during program execution. Indeed, the state of microarchitectural components … full description “WebAssembly-based microarchitectural covert channel attacks: capabilities, proof-of-concept, and implications (completed)”
