Addressing security challenges for the industrial internet of things

With the emergence of the Internet of Things (IoT) and Industry 4.0, there is a trend for applying these services and applications to a large-scale industrial area. The IoT paradigm has changed the way of interactions with the things that surround us. In essence, the IoT promises ubiquitous connection to the Internet, turning common objects into connected devices. It is predicted that there will be 50 billion connected devices at the end of the year 2022.Over the last few years, …

Trust in Internet-of-Things with blockchain

Blockchain is an unchangeable, distributed database that provides trust in data once it is stored on the database. However, in Internet-of-Things (IoT), the data is an observation of physical context and is susceptible to noise, drift, or malicious alterations. Sensors may even be decoupled from their intended context by an attacker, which may compromise the blockchain data and its value for guiding decisions.This project aims to develop an innovative approach for pervasive trust in IoT, underpinned by blockchain. The research …

Adversarial attacks to machine learning based models in cybersecurity

Modern Intrusion Detection Systems (IDSs) rely on machine learning for detecting and defending cyber-attacks in information technology (IT) networks. However, the introduction of such systems has introduced an additional attack dimension; the trained IDS models may also be subject to attacks.The act of deploying attacks towards machine learning based systems is known as Adversarial Machine Learning (AML) [1]. The aim is to exploit the weaknesses of the pretrained model which has “blind spots” between data points it has seen during …

Financial security and ageing

Dr Kelly Purser is interested in supervising students who wish to undertake research about estate planning, financial security and ageing. Financial security as people age is something that is determined by the whole of life course, not just what people do as they near retirement. It is therefore important to consider the implications of future planning on the life able to be led 'post-retirement'. This includes not only estate planning tools such as wills and enduring documents, but also financial …

Cyber-security aspects of battery storage systems

Lithium-ion (Li-ion) batteries are a key energy storage component in various electrical and electronic systems such as mobile phones, electric vehicles and grid storage. A properly designed battery management system (BMS) is crucial to guarantee the safety, reliability, and optimal performance of the battery as well as to interconnect the battery systems with each other and external systems through communication channels. However, security threats of the Li-ion battery systems are often overlooked by BMS developers in the design phase. The …

Youth Advocacy for Peace and Security

In locations most affected by violence, young people disproportionately bear the consequences of conflict, underdevelopment, injustice, and forced displacement. They also are often seen as the problem, rather than part of the solution, which leads to youth being shut out of political and civic spaces. This project will explore youth-led advocacy currently taking place which responds to this persistent exclusion. Young people have long been advocating, developing and implementing positive practices to build more secure and peaceful societies, yet continue …
