Land Forces 2016: Claudia Szabo to discuss research ideas during Pitching Event

Claudia Szabo, the Complex Systems project leader will be pitching research ideas during the Land Forces 2016 conference. Come and find her to discuss ways of best modeling human interactions (both in person and online) in areas of conflict, to best identify emerging unwanted behaviors! The work builds on the group’s modeling of complex systems […]

Yuval Yarom to deliver a keynote talk at PROOFS 2016

Yuval Yarom has been invited to present a keynote talk at PROOFS 2016. PROOFS is a security workshop focusing on Security Proofs for Embedded Systems. Title: Thwarting cache-based side-channel attacks Abstract: Cache-based side-channel attacks leak sensitive information through a shared cache. The attacker exploits contention on the cache to trace the victim’s access to memory. These traces […]

PhD graduate recognised by Dean’s Commendation for Doctoral Thesis Excellence

Scott Bourne’s PhD thesis was recognised by Dean’s Commendation for Doctoral Thesis Excellence. Co-supervised by Prof. Michael Sheng and Dr Claudia Szabo, Scott’s PhD project focuses on developing novel solutions on formal validation of service-based business processes based on model checking techniques. The result has the potential to be applied in mission-critical applications (e.g., defence) […]

The best metrics for identifying self-organisation

Self-organisation is one of the key properties of complex systems yet automated tools to identify it have yet to be applied to systems other than toy models such as the Game of Life. Lachlan’s work is looking at implementing system complexity, Chan’s interaction metric, limited bandwidth recognition, de-centralised emergence detection and multi-scale Shannon entropy. His experiments […]

CDIT Security Collaboration in the news!

Two of our research projects have attracted media attention recently. The Daily Mail reports on our CacheBleed attack. CacheBleed monitors minute changes in the time it takes a computer to execute a sequence of operations and use it to steal information on the internal working of cryptographic algorithms. While the possibility of such an attack […]
