ARC Linkage Grant in Autoconfiguration of Critical Network Infrastructure for Australian Citizens

Applications are invited for the following scholarship leading to the degree of PhD in mathematical science.
The scholarship is supported by the Australian Research Council Linkage grant scheme and CQR Consulting.
Australia’s critical infrastructure, e.g., water and electricity, rely more and more on computer networks. The goal of this project is to improve the security of these networks. The focus of the work will be on mathematical representations of the security system’s elements, with a view to allowing network and security specification to take place at a high level, and be automatically implemented without dealing with the minutia of configuration of individual devices such as firewalls and servers.  The potential impacts of the project include improvements to security in vital power stations and water plants, as well as improvements in efficiency in these same areas.
