This research agreement will be supporting research in the areas of combat system security, continuing our existing collaborative research relationship with DSTO in the areas of Security and Virtualisation within distributed environments.
The areas of research for this Research Agreement will be:
- Research into threats applicable to Virtualisation technologies in a common pool of resources approach with a focus on extending the current investigation of VMware ESXi and Xen to include more light weight implementations such as seL4 and Docker.
- Investigate the risk that malicious or compromised attached devices pose to Combat Systems. This activity will investigate current findings, identify further vulnerabilities and investigate techniques for mitigating such attacks.
