Engineering and IT

Objectives:

The objective of this thesis is to develop an automated 3D digitising and cataloguing platform for insects and plants. The specimen will be digitised into a 3D model and, through feature extraction, catalogued using an adaptive algorithm.

This project involves design of opto-mechanical equipment and the development of image processing software.

Objectives:

Wireless network especially sensor networks are pervasive. This project investigates security issues in wireless sensor networks such as key management and back hole detection.

Description of Work:

  • Studying and analysing existing sensor network security algorithms
  • Designing new sensor network security algorithms

Skills Required:

Objectives:

Network attacks are happening daily and have caused huge damage to our society. This project investigates latest network intrusion detection technology such DDoS attack detection.

Description of Work:

  • Studying and analysing existing network intrusion detection algorithms
  • Designing new network intrusion detection algorithms

Skills Required:

Objectives:

Firewalls cannot prevent new attacks. This project investigates how to detect attacks that have penetrated the firewalls.

Description of Work:

  • Studying and analysing existing host-based intrusion detection algorithms
  • Designing new host-based intrusion detection algorithms

Skills Required:

Good math background especially statistics, solid networking knowledge and concrete programming skills.

Objectives:
