If you are interested in working on an exciting and cutting-edge research project or thesis in the next generation of telecommunication security, then you are in the right place. At SecT, we are investigating the security of a radically new telco architecture known as Open Radio Access Networks (ORAN). Think of ORAN as the interesection of telecommunications and cloud networking. We have multiple research directions to pursue in this area and we are looking for highly motivated and excellent students to join us in our passion to make our next generation telco infrastructure open, fast and secure. You will have the opportunity to make a real world impact as this research involves real software. You will have the opportunity to contribute changes at various levels to the ORAN community, e.g., software and system design, ORAN architecture, software vulnerabilties and CVEs, open-source community and academic community. If you are interested, contact Dr. Kashyap Thimmaraju via email (kashyap.thimmaraju(at) for a project or thesis.
