Job Description

Problem statement

If you are interested in shaping the future of securing connected mobility, we are excited to offer an inspiring and fun master’s thesis project.

The increasing dependence on connectivity and software has brought about a new set of security challenges. One of the biggest problems is the prevalence of software bugs that leave systems insecure. As software becomes more complex and interconnected, the likelihood of bugs and vulnerabilities increases. These bugs can be exploited by attackers to gain unauthorized access to systems, steal sensitive data, or even cause physical damage. In addition, the increasing use of third-party software components and libraries can introduce additional security risks, as these components may contain vulnerabilities that are not immediately apparent. To address these challenges, it is important to adopt a proactive approach to software security, starting from the hardware platforms on which the software is executed.

Proposed solution

The focus in this thesis project shall be on evaluating the effectiveness of utilizing Capability Hardware Enhanced RISC Instructions (CHERI) to mitigate against commonly exploited software vulnerabilities.

We propose the following topics to be covered in the thesis:

• Benefits of utilizing CHERI versus conventional hardware instructions sets for C/C++ development

• Research and find suitable alternatives to CHERI

• Identification of toolchain and development effort for utilizing CHERI

• Run-time performance impact for CHERI

• Build-time performance impact for CHERI

You will of course have the opportunity to shape the thesis based on your knowledge, skills and discoveries during the project.

Scope of master thesis project

Two students completing 30 credits each (20 weeks) onsite at the Lund office.


Please note: Only applications from students at a Swedish University are accepted.

Your profile

In order to be successful in the project with think you are:

  • A student in Information Technology, Computer Science, Electronics, Math or Physics.
  • Interested in cybersecurity and have some experience with software vulnerabilities.
  • Experienced with Linux, programming in C/C++ and has knowledge of computer hardware architecture.
  • Self-driven, able to challenge yourself, and gain the experience needed to move the project forward.
  • A person with team spirit, social skills and a curiosity for exploring new technology areas.
