Within the DIG group, 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 A/Prof Katrina Falkner.

Summer research projects

We welcome Jack Gerrits, Sean Marciniak and David Piper who have joined DIG 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 […]

Information and Software Technology: A Comprehensive Pattern-Oriented Approach to Engineering Security Methodologies

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 […]

Sam Jaeschke Joins DIG

We welcome Sam Jaeschke, who has joined DIG 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 […]

Gesture-controlled Drones – Video of Summer Student Project Work

Over the summer, Cathlyn Aston and Matt Hart worked with the DIG group to explore how we could use the Leap Motion and a pre-release next generation Kinect to control the AR.Drones that we have within the group. This was a fantastic project – with a great result that you can see below! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F9VKcUL0CYs

ASWEC 2013: A Model-driven Approach for Ensuring Change Traceability and Multi-Model Consistency

A paper describing our work in multi-modelling has been accepted for the ASWEC 2013 conference to be held in Melbourne in June. This paper describes our work in the multi-modeling project, led by Dr Claudia Szabo, providing initial experimental results and an overview of our multi-modelling architecture. Multi-modelling supports the integration of different modelling languages […]
