Interdisciplinary centre for doctoral training (CDT) for a new generation of researchers to tackle trust, identity, privacy and security (TIPS) issues in the large-scale, hyper-connected infrastructures of the future.

Innovations such as Internet of Things (IoT), smart grids and the growth in wireless sensor technologies, have serious security implications for the large-scale infrastructure that serve our everyday needs - including water, power, transportation, and manufacturing. These highly interconnected infrastructures will regularly collect, process or disseminate massive amounts of data - all the while delivering critical services to our homes and businesses.

As we move towards a hyperconnected future, cyber-attacks form one of the major threats to national and international security. We need future leaders in academia and industry who are able to anticipate the myriad trust, identity, privacy and security challenges in complex infrastructures and develop solutions to overcome them.
