KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm has grown to become one of Europe’s leading technical and engineering universities, as well as a key centre of intellectual talent and innovation. We are Sweden’s largest technical research and learning institution and home to students, researchers and faculty from around the world. Our research and education covers a wide area including natural sciences and all branches of engineering, as well as architecture, industrial management, urban planning, history and philosophy.
The Division of Network and Systems Engineering at the EECS-School is conducting research relating attack graphs as a means to analyze the security posture of computer systems.Our research is largely devoted to developing various solutions for automating the generation of attack graphs.This includes for instance languages and formal methods for attack graph generation, automatic attack process mining through sensors and system indicators, data-driven attack graph tuning (based e.g. on threat intelligence),and optimization/self-learning techniques, such as machine learning, for secure design.The research results aim to support both security engineers working in contexts of Security Operation Centers and Computer Security Incident Response Teams as well as in more tactical development and maintenance projects.We work closely with organizations in the critical infrastructure domain, in particular the power sector as well as the defense sector.We are involved in several national and international research projects and programs, including two H2020 projects.We are now offering a two-year doctoral position in which the candidate will participate in ongoing research projects and contribute to the undergraduate education.
