JP Morgan - ROAR Data
Cryptography - Multi Party Computation

Here’s something to ponder. Each of three people possess an integer modulo seven. They must determine the sum of their integers modulo seven without use of a trusted third party, and ensuring that the Bayesian posterior for all participants is precisely the prior conditioned on the new information only.

We’re guessing you know that one. If you enjoy privacy preserving computation and recognize the potential, you might want to join a team of top tier engineers, data scientists, mathematicians and cryptographers working on the ROAR platform. You will collaborate across engineering and business units to help build a next-generation prediction platform used by the bank, the bank’s clients, and eventually - we hope - the entire world.

You will:

• Design, implement and improve techniques for privacy preserving Machine Learning using whatever techniques are most appropriate (cryptographic, statistical and a combination of the two).

• Design, implement and improve partial structure preserving data obfuscation methodologies

• Design and analyze hypothetical statistical attacks, real and hypothetical

• Design and build into our contest framework new primitives, and combinations of the same, to expand the possibilities for crowd-sourcing data, predictions and models.

• Work with leading experts in secure multiparty computation.

• Collaborate with researchers and students as part of the JP Morgan/ ROAR partnership with MIT, which involves Sloan CIDL and MIT CSAIL.

• Adapt privacy methods to real-time data streams.

The Information Assurance Platform (IAP) is a platform that provides tools for building and enhancing cybersecurity applications. The company has raised investment capital.

This position is available full time or part time, on a work remotely basis (telecommuting).

The successful applicant is requested to support the written documentation of the project. The project aims to establish an open standard for the use of the platform (the IAP standard). Where applicable, cryptographic terms, algorithms, diagrams and other items will be required to be written to the current standards of the industry and to the standards of peer review.

The position will be responsible for the project documentation as it pertains to cryptography; to rewrite existing documentation in an expert manner, and to ensure that additional information is correct, useful, up to date and appropriate. Therefore, the position will be required to understand the goals and designs of the project intimately. Full support in gaining this understanding will be provided.

The cryptography in question is focused on computational integrity and privacy research, including zero knowledge proofs and succinct non interactive arguments of knowledge.

The position is not expected to create, invent, redesign or develop cryptography or cryptographic systems. Rather, to understand current research, explain, interpret and ultimately document the relevant cryptography as it pertains (or does nor pertain) to the design of systems of the platform.

All applicants are welcome.

Deparment of Computer Science, TU Darmstadt, Germany
Positions for Ph.D. candidates and Postdocs in Information-Flow Security and Side-Channel Analysis

The chair MAIS at TU Darmstadt, led by Prof. Dr. Heiko Mantel, is offering multiple positions. We are looking for researchers who are interested in addressing foundational problems that will be of practical relevance or in addressing practical problems based on solid foundations. The research focus shall be on software security (information-flow security or side-channel analysis) using formal methods or systematic experiments.

We are offering three positions for Ph.D. candidates and Postdocs in the following areas:

  1. information-flow analysis techniques for object-oriented programs at the level of source code and bytecode based on compositional and precise verification techniques
  2. experimental analysis of side-channel vulnerabilities in cryptographic implementations and generation of attacks exploiting such vulnerabilities
  3. program analysis techniques for detecting side-channel vulnerabilities in cryptographic implementations and for assessing the seriousness of such vulnerabilities

The overall goal of our research at MAIS is to make software-based systems more trustworthy (i.e. secure, safe, and correct) than they are today. As software engineering is a complex and error-prone task,

we employ formal methods in combination with experiments for reasoning about software and critical system properties. We investigate software systems on the level of source code, bytecode, and machine code as well as on the level of more abstract system specifications. This allows us to provide support for security at different stages of software

development. At MAIS we are offering a productive and collaborative research environment in which you can discuss ideas with other team members working on related topics.

The positions are available immediately and applications will be considered until the positions are taken. These are positions with regular salary and social benefits based on TV-TUD. For more information and how to apply, see http://www.mais.informatik.tu-darmstadt.de/Positions.html.
