A thesis about XYZ and SSH/SSH-Attacker

Global

Supervision: Marcus Brinkmann

More details:

Description

The chair for Network and Data security develops a tool suite used to analyze SSH implementations, called SSH-Attacker, which we also use to try more advanced automatic analysis techniques. We always have open topics for bachelor and master students who want to do something in this field. A potential thesis could extend current tools, develop entirely new tools or analyze TLS implementations with existing tools. The exact topics we have available frequently change, so if you are interested in such a topic, we can schedule an informal meeting to try to find a topic that fits your personal strengths.

If this sounds good, send us (both) an Email, and we can schedule a meeting.

Requirements

Variable, but we are mostly looking for people who have a good understanding about SSH or other cryptographic network protocols and have experience in Java, as all our tools are written in Java. It is advantageous if you did the TLS implementation course, a seminar, or did a BA/MA-Project with us.
