Within CDIT, we are always looking for good students to join us and work within our project areas. The work of our students, HDR and undergraduate, is showcased here – if you are interested in learning more about our work, perhaps undertaking an honours project, HDR studies, or working with us on one of our winter or summer scholarship programs, please contact the project leader for the CDIT project area that you are interested in.
This week we welcome four new members to the CDIT team. Michelle McClintock joins CDIT to complete her PhD research on an organisational framework for enterprise security architecture. While modern enterprise architecture frameworks have planned to capture a holistic picture of an organisation, security has been identified as a separate component which fails to have […]
Josiah Saunders has recently completed his CDIT Summer Internship, working on integrating video streaming capabilities within the MODPIE performance prediction environment. The MODPIE environment supports early performance prediction of distributed software systems, through the construction of performance models for the distributed software system that may be executed above realistic deployment scenarios. This enables the gathering […]
Anton Uzunov’s thesis work has been in the area of pattern-based security methodologies for distributed systems. Final work from thesis has been recently accepted for Computer Standards & Interfaces. Incorporating security features is one of the most important and challenging tasks in designing distributed systems. Over the last decade, researchers and practitioners have come to […]
Thomas McAtee joins CDIT as a summer research student working on a system to identify rumours on Twitter.
We welcome Jack Gerrits, Sean Marciniak and David Piper who have joined CDIT to work on three summer research projects. Jack is looking at ways of exploiting Google Chrome Native clients to mount side-channel attacks on the user’s machine. Sean is investigating the potential for attacking machines using malicious USB devices. David is looking at intercepting […]
Henry Stevens joins CDIT for a summer research scholarship. He will be implementing a system for benchmarking emergence identification methods using hyper-structures.
Anton Uzunov is leading work into the development of a pattern-oriented approach to the engineering of secure software methodologies. Recent work in this space, accepted for publication in the Journal of Information and Software Technology, builds upon existing method engineering ideas to form a new comprehensive approach to engineering security methodologies. Developing secure software systems […]
We welcome Sam Jaeschke, who has joined CDIT to complete his Honours year research project. Sam work will extend our earlier work on micro-architectural side-channel attacks. Past research has demonstrated that Intel X86 processors are vulnerable to the FLUSH+RELOAD side-channel attack. The attack allows malicious virtual machine to recover secret information from a victim virtual machine […]
Our paper, An Architecture for Identifying Emergent Behavior in Multi-Agent Systems has been accepted for publication at AAMAS 2014! Abstract: Multi-agent systems exhibit unexpected, emergent behavior as a result of the complexity of agent behaviors and their interactions. Despite significant research interest in the past decades, computational methods to identify and analyze emergence as it happens […]
CDIT has a range of projects available for students undertaking projects in Semester 2, whether you are studying the BCS(Advanced) or Masters of CS/Honours. Please review the projects page for more details!
