The MADYNES Research team at INRIA's Nancy Grand Est location is looking for a talented and highly motivated Ph.D. candidate to join our international research team in the area of network and security management.

Short Ph.D. thesis description :

Proactive Risk Management for VoIP Networks and Services

Voice over IP (VoIP) has become a major paradigm for providing flexible phone services and reducing operational costs. The large-scale deployment of VoIP has been leveraged by the high-speed broadband access to the Internet and the standardization of dedicated protocols. However, VoIP faces multiple security issues including vulnerabilities inherited from the IP layer and security attacks specific to VoIP services. The objective of this PhD thesis is to design, implement and validate new models and architectures for performing proactive risk management in VoIP networks.
The research will be done in the context of the joint INRIA-Alcatel/Lucent Bellabs laboratory. The doctoral student will be located in the Nancy premises of INRIA. He/She will also have the opportunity to contribute to the EMANICS European Network of Excellence.

Requirements :

Applicants should have a strong background in networking and security. They would ideally combine a true interest for theoretical work (applied statistics, data analysis, risk modeling) with excellent engineering skills (networking and software programming in Java/C++). A first experience in the fields of VoIP and/or risk management would definitely be an asset.

Dates & numbers :

The start of the thesis is envisioned on october 1st, 2008 for a duration of 36 months.
The expected salary is around 2000 Euros gross per month.

Application Procedure :

Candidates should send a PDF of their detailed CV, together with a list of 3 references and a PDF copy of their Masters Thesis.
The documents should be sent to :
