Threat modeling provides methods for the systematic identification and evaluation of security threats to system, in order to support development teams in a risk-based approach to securing systems.

A threat modeling method targeted for cloud-based systems needs to fit to the complexity of such systems, and needs to take into account  cloud-specific threats as well as generic threats.

  • Your thesis will explore to which extent existing threat modeling proposals fit the typical cloud-based systems developed at Siemens.
  • You will research on content and methods how to support threat modeling for cloud-based systems.
  • A PoC implementation, based on an existing tool implementation for threat & risk analysis, can be part of the master thesis.
  • You validate your proposals based on your PoC implementation.

What you need to make real what matters.

  • You are currently enrolled in a technical or scientific degree, e.g. computer science or information security.
  • Ideally, you have already gained some experience with threat modeling.
  • You enjoy scientific work and are characterized by a structured and independent way of working.
  • Very good written and oral English skills are required, German skills would be an asset.
