Meltdown and Spectre

Presented recently, Meltdown and Spectre represent two critical vulnerabilities in modern processors. The adversaries can exploit these vulnerabilities in order to recover sensitive information stored in memory. The rationale is that these vulnerabilities allow adversaries to bypass the isolation between different applications. In this work, the student will present, execute and analyse these vulnerabilities (on several CPUs) in order to report their impact on real products.

Performance Analysis of Group Key Agreement Protocols

A group key agreement (GKA) protocol ensures establishment of a common session key among the group members which remains unknown to outsiders. Practically, a GKA enables multiple remote users to communicate securely in an open environment. In this thesis, the student will present a comparative study of GKA protocols and implement them for the sake of performance analysis.
