Open Hiwi Position

Implementing Efficient Secure Computation

The Engineering Cryptographic Protocols Group (ENCRYPTO) is offering a Hiwi position. The number of working hours is flexible and ranges from 40 to 82 hours per month starting in October 2017. The initial contract will run for 3 months. However, a long-term cooperation is possible and desired.

Motivation & Goal

Secure computation allows mutually distrusting parties to jointly compute a function on their input data without revealing anything but the result. It can be employed on a variety of hardware platforms, ranging from mobile phones to high-end servers, and has a high number of applications, including the discovery of common contacts, genomic sequencing, or the secure processing of data in the cloud. Correspondingly, possible challenges for an applicant are wide-spread and include but are not limited to:

  • Implementing new protocol designs in C/C++, as well as evaluating them and comparing them to prior art
  • Running experiments for determining protocol parameters and failure probabilities on the Lichtenberg High Performance Computer (HHLR)
  • Maintaining and extending our ABY framework for efficient mixed-protocol secure two-party computation

The results emerging from this work are essential contributions to research papers that will be published at international top conferences.

Requirements

  • Good programming skills in C/C++
  • At least basic knowledge of cryptography
  • High motivation and creativity + ability to work independently
  • Flexible working hours
  • Experience with reading research papers is beneficial
  • Knowledge of the English language goes without saying
