The 24th episode of our very own CISPA podcast TL;DR is online! We are talking about MobileAtlas, an infrastructure for mobile network tests across Europe. It was developed by CISPA researcher Adrian Dabrwoski, together with Gabriel Gegenhuber from the University of Vienna and colleagues from SBA Research. Dabrowski explains why testing and measuring across borders has been difficult and cumbersome so far, what the idea and technology behind MobileAtlas are, and what else he is interested in besides mobile research.
DLS Talk with Professor Lejla Batina (Radboud University) on “Beyond Physical: Revisiting the Interplay of Side-channel analysis and AI” Thursday, 12th of October, at 10am.
Lejla Batina is a professor in embedded systems security at Radboud University in Nijmegen, the Netherlands. She received her Ph.D. from KU Leuven, Belgium (2005) and before that she worked as a cryptographer for SafeNet B.V. in The Netherlands (2001–2003).
She has coauthored close to 160 refereed articles on various topics in applied cryptography and embedded systems security. Her current research interests include physical attacks on cryptographic implementations and the impact of AI on hardware security.
Cybersecurity is a young and fast-evolving field. As a Helmholtz Center for Information Security, CISPA is dedicated to cutting-edge foundational research combined with innovative application-oriented research in the areas of cybersecurity, privacy, and artificial intelligence.
CISPA PODCAST TL;DR
That text was way too long, so you didn't bother reading it? We feel you! In TL;DR, CISPA's first podcast, we talk to researchers about their work on cybersecurity and artificial intelligence. Once a month, we try to ask them the exact same questions that our listeners are asking themselves.
People from 43 nations work at CISPA. That's why you'll find conversations in both German and English in this feed.
Have fun listening!
CISPA Zine: composed of CISPA and magazine, derived from the idea of the "fanzine." Fanzines are mostly small, folded magazines on various topics, created by fans for fans. The CISPA Zine is published quarterly and keeps our colleagues, supporters, and interested parties up to date on all important developments at the center.
The targeted support of emerging researchers is part and parcel of our self-understanding as a world-leading research center. We support PhD students in almost all of our research areas, including cybersecurity, data protection, cryptography, machine learning, data science, efficient algorithms, network security and program analysis.
PhD students who are enrolled at one of at one of the universities we cooperate with are eligible for the position of research assistant at CISPA. We are always looking for outstanding academic talent from all over the world. Candidates must hold a degree from a first-rate, research-oriented university in a subject relevant to our research interests. They should also possess an exceptional academic record, a good command of the English language as well as convincing letters of recommendation from their mentors or supervisors. At CISPA, our working language is English.
It is our goal to train and hire top researchers and to accompany them in all stages of their scientific career. We want to help them advance as learners, from bachelor's or master's degrees to doctorates and postdoc or faculty-level positions.
No matter what career step you want to take at CISPA, we offer everyone a stimulating, international, competitive, yet collaborative and, above all, enjoyable working environment for research and education. We firmly believe that this is how we can all reach our full potential.
