PhD position : Smart radio resource management in heterogeneous ITS-G5 / 5G vehicular networks


Mission and activities:
Nowadays, the security of traditional and autonomous vehicles is one of the most important issues facing automotive industries and researchers. Wireless Vehicular Ad-hoc NETworks (VANETs) enhance road safety by allowing vehicles and other road users to exchange information. As an example, vehicles can use VANETs to disseminate their perception of the surrounding environment or their present position. In this way, several potentially critical driving situations can be avoided.
The present European and American standards for Vehicle-to-Vehicle (V2V) and Vehicle-to-Infrastructure (V2I) communications, collectively defined as Vehicle-to-Everything (V2X) communications, are both based on the IEEE 802.11p standard, with minor variations. This standard is based on OFDM modulation. In Europe, V2X communications have been allocated 5 contiguous radio channels of 10 MHz each in the 5.9 GHz band (also called ITS band).
However, OFDM modulation produces meaningful spurious emissions. Hence, it is ineffective to communicate using OFDM in one of these 10 MHz radio channels while other OFDM-based communications are ongoing in the adjacent channels.
Starting from these considerations, this thesis will explore the possibility of allocating two (or more) of the 10 MHz-wide channels of the ITS band for non-OFDM-based vehicular communications, so as to avoid having any two adjacent channels being used by OFDM-based transceivers.
In particular, the candidate will evaluate the performance of the new Radio Access Technologies (RAT) and waveforms proposed for future 5th-generation (5G) networks. Moreover, he/she will investigate their integration in the ITS band and their compatibility with the 802.11p.
A major scientific problem that this thesis will address is the optimization of the PHY layer in presence of interference due to spurious emissions from adjacent OFDM-based channels. Indeed, this interference is expected to be time- and frequency-variant, and particular care will have to be taken in designing an effective Radio Resource Management (RRM) scheme and in appropriately selecting the Modulation and Coding Scheme (MCS) to be adopted in each subcarrier (or block of subcarriers) to cope with a given time-frequency interference pattern. To this aim, the candidate will have to devise, implement and test an effective scheme to learn and predict the interference.

Tasks
- State of the art of the proposed subject
- Performance Assessment (OFDM spurious emissions impact, 5G RATs performance)
- Design of machine learning-based methods to solve the described problem
- Implementation and Tests on Software Defined Radio

Tools:
The main tool the candidate will be using is a Software Defined Radio (SDR). SDR is an increasingly adopted technology in industry and research. It defines software chains or flow graphs models for wireless transmission and reception chains, i.e. connected signal and data processing blocks. Flow graphs define processing steps from packet construction to baseband waveform generation and vice versa. The GNU
Radio toolkit and USRP (Universal Software Radio Peripheral) are an open-source SDR with numerous possibilities.
Other hardware and software tools to be used are:
- GNU Radio toolkit
- MATLAB
- COTS transceivers implementing the IEEE 802.11p protocol
- USRP B210 from Ettus Research
Keywords
V2X communications, Radio Access Technologies, Machine learning, IEEE 802.11p, Software Defined Radio, 5G waveforms
Skills and profiles
- Knowledge and/or experience on wireless digital communications
- Knowledge and/or experience on C++ programming languages and open source software (Linux)
- Autonomy / Curiosity
- Good command of written and spoken English (mandatory)
Our Institute
VEDECOM was created in February 2014 and is an Institute for Energy Transition (ITE) established as part of the French government’s ‘Investment for the future plan’ (Programme d’Investissements d’Avenir or PIA). The Institute is dedicated to individual, carbon-free and sustainable mobility.

- Scientific Context :
The huge growth of Internet exposes many users to various threats. This has been intensified by the large deployment of new devices in addition to traditional computers. This includes smartphones and sensors, and will concern daily life objects in a near future with the emergence of the Internet of Things (IoT) the last years. Hence, this represents a tremendous playground for attackers. To fight them, network security is essential to identify misbehaviors and potential victims as earlier as possible.
Since attackers evolve from individuals towards organized cyber-criminal organizations while meantime the attacks being more distributed and complex. For example, the botnets [2] are still a major threat on Internet, where thousands of zombie machines can take part, because they have been successfully adapted from a centralized model based on IRC towards distributed approach, even P2P, taking advantage of traditional protocol (DNS for fast fluxing) and new technologies (social networks for synchronization). In parallel, they are responsible of various attacks including spam, denial of service, credential stealing... Therefore fighting such a threat among others require to collect, analyze and correlate various sources of data to create summarized view that are exploitable by human administrator and, if possible, in real time and in an automated way. This is the current challenge of the network security monitoring [6]. Currently, most of attacks remains unrevealed, but when they are suspected, it is vital to investigate it to confirm, to trace the root causes and attackers. The forensics security teams have very few tools which let them performing analysis mainly manual which introduces two bias: long delay (from few hours to several months) and human bias due to background and experiences.
In parallel, data-analytics methods have skyrocketed recently and are able to cope with huge volumes of unstructured data and so are good candidates for being adapted and applied to security monitoring challenges by allowing collecting and analyzing multiple sources of relevant data while current approaches focuses on few ones or on simple correlation of several ones.
- Missions :
The objective of the post-doctorate is to contribute to investigation of complex attacks by modeling acquired data and leveraging artificial intelligence techniques. To achieve that, it will be necessary :
analyze current threats to define data and features being primordial for an efficient monitoring. This will allow then to design data models which are able to handle heterogeneous and multi-dimensionnal data.
define methods based on data-analytics to identify anomalies based on these data models. This will consider statistical analysis, stochastic modeling (such as Hidden Markov Models) graph analysis and machine learning approaches (Topological Data Analysis, topic modeling). Some of these methods are already prototype and will require further development
define methods for interactive and visual investigation of multiple sources of security data. This will consider similar methods that those under the second item but with a hard constraint on the reactivity and the limited quantity of information which can be dealt simultaneously by a human. Hence, these methods may rely on streaming analytics approaches, learning approaches to predict the next requests of the analysts to prepare the results, combining and selecting information.
validate the proposed methods on different scenarios
In addition to these scientific tasks, the role of post-doctorate is also to implement proof-of-concepts of those define methods and interact with and report to other partners in the project to ensure a proper integration in a global platform (common at all partners in the projects)
This work will be achieved in the context of the first French high security academic research laboratory in Nancy (LHS – High Security Laboratory) which provides powerful tools and support for collecting and analyzing dataset in a realistic environment and in the context of the HuMa project funded under the FUI programme (Fond Unique Interministériel) with major French industrial players in cyber-security.


Ph.D. POSITION on 'Smart radio resource management in heterogeneous ITS-G5 / 5G vehicular networks'

Mission and activities
Nowadays, the security of traditional and autonomous vehicles is one of the most important issues facing automotive industries and researchers. Wireless Vehicular Ad-hoc NETworks (VANETs) enhance road safety by allowing vehicles and other road users to exchange information. As an example, vehicles can use VANETs to disseminate their perception of the surrounding environment or their present position. In this way, several potentially critical driving situations can be avoided.
The present European and American standards for Vehicle-to-Vehicle (V2V) and Vehicle-to-Infrastructure (V2I) communications, collectively defined as Vehicle-to-Everything (V2X) communications, are both based on the IEEE 802.11p standard, with minor variations. This standard adopts the OFDM modulation, which offers robustness to Doppler spread (if the PHY layer is appropriately designed) and multipath fading effects. In Europe, V2X communications have been allocated 5 contiguous radio channels of 10 MHz each in the 5.9 GHz band (also called ITS band).
However, the 802.11p random channel access, the meaningful spurious emissions of OFDM and the insertion of guard intervals between consecutive transmitted symbols represent major drawbacks of this technology, limiting both its scalability and its spectrum efficiency. This has motivated the development of alternative solutions in accordance with the paradigm of future 5th-generation (5G) networks.

Starting from these considerations, this thesis will explore the possibility of using non-OFDM-based waveforms and an alternative channel access scheme in a part of the ITS band. In particular, the candidate will evaluate the performance of the new Radio Access Technologies (RAT) and waveforms proposed for 5G networks. Moreover, he/she will investigate their potential for a seamless integration with the existing technology.

A major scientific problem that this thesis will address is the optimization of the PHY- and MAC-layer taking into account the interference due to spurious emissions from adjacent OFDM-based channels. Indeed, this interference is expected to be time-and frequency-variant, as well as location dependent. Particular care will have to be taken in designing an effective Radio Resource Management (RRM) scheme and in appropriately selecting the Modulation and Coding Scheme (MCS) to be adopted in each subcarrier (or block of subcarriers) to cope with a given time-frequency interference pattern. To this aim, the candidate will have to devise, implement and test an effective scheme to learn and predict the interference.

Keywords
V2X communications, Radio Access Technologies, Optimization, IEEE 802.11p, Software Defined Radio, 5G waveforms

Tasks
- State of the art of the proposed subject
- Performance Assessment (OFDM spurious emissions impact, 5G RATs performance)
- Design of solutions to the described problem
- Implementation and Tests on Software Defined Radio

Tools
The main tool the candidate will be using is a Software Defined Radio (SDR). SDR is an increasingly adopted technology in industry and research. It defines soft ware chains or flowgraphs mode ls for wireless transmission a nd reception chains, i.e. conn ected signal and dataprocessin g blocks. Flow graphs define p rocessing steps from packet co nstruction to basebandwaveform generation and vice versa. T he GNU Radio toolkit and USRP (Universal Software Radio Peripheral) are an open-source SDR with numerous possibiliti es. GNU Radio implementation [5] of th e IEEE 802.11p has been propos ed in [6]. It has been tested and fo undinteroperable with a COTS (Commercial Off-The-Shelf) receiver.

Other hardware and software tools to be used are:
- GNU Radio toolkit
- MATLAB
- COTS transceivers implementing the IEEE 802.11p protocol
- USRP B210 from Ettus Research

Skills and profiles
- Knowledge and/or experience on wireless digital communications
- Knowledge and/or experience on C++ programming languages and open source software (Linux)
- Autonomy / Curiosity
- Good command of written and spoken English (mandatory)

Our Institute
VEDECOM was created in February 2014 and is an Institute for Energy Transition (ITE) established as part of the French government’s forward-looking investment plan (Programme d’Investissements d’Avenir). The Institute is dedicated to individual, carbon-free and sustainable mobility.

Project Overview: Computer systems that control physical environments like manufacturing processes, known as Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS), have transformed significantly. Due to device proliferation and large-scale connectivity, a variety of functionalities are now feasible in CPS. However, connectivity also means that these systems operate in unreliable open environments, and hence resiliency to faults (reliability), malfunctions (safety) and attacks (security) become important. This resiliency is fundamentally dependent on the resiliency of the cyber-infrastructure of CPS (communication network and computation nodes), which plays a central role of data delivery and execution of control. The objective of this project is to design a resilient cyber-infrastructure for such emerging CPS. The project will design and prototype a resilient cyber-infrastructure including hardware platforms, middleware solutions and communication protocols. The developed solutions are expected to be used in
real industrial systems.

PhD and postdoc positions on data analytics and visualisation for cyber-security at Inria Nancy Grand Est - France

A PhD and postdoc positions are now open on data analytics and visualisation for cyber-security at Inria Nancy Grand Est.
- Scientific Context:
The huge growth of Internet exposes many users to various threats. This has been intensified by the large deployment of new devices in addition to traditional computers. This includes smartphones and sensors, and will concern daily life objects in a near future with the emergence of the Internet of Things (IoT) the last years. Hence, this represents a tremendous playground for attackers. To fight them, network security is essential to identify misbehaviors and potential victims as earlier as possible.
The attackers evolve from individuals towards organized cyber-criminal organizations [1] while meantime the attacks being more distributed and complex. For example, the botnets [2] are still a major threat on Internet, where thousands of zombie machines can take part, because they have been successfully adapted from a centralized model based on IRC towards distributed approach, even P2P, taking advantage of traditional protocol (DNS for fast fluxing [3]) and new technologies (social networks for synchronization [4]). In parallel, they are responsible of various attacks including spam, denial of service, credential stealing [5]... Therefore fighting such a threat among others require to collect, analyze and correlate various sources of data to create summarized view that are exploitable by human administrator and, if possible, in real time and in an automated way. This is the current challenge of the network security monitoring [6]. Currently, most of attacks remains unrevealed, but when they are suspected, it is vital to investigate it to confirm, to trace the root causes and attackers. The forensics security teams have very few tools which let them performing analysis mainly manually, which introduces two bias: long delay (from few hours to several months) and human bias due to background and experiences.
In parallel, data-analytics methods have skyrocketed recently and are able to cope with huge volumes of unstructured data and so are good candidates for being adapted and applied to security monitoring challenges by allowing collecting and analyzing multiple sources of relevant data while current approaches focuses on few ones or on simple correlation of several ones.
- Project description:
The objective of the project is to design a methodology for being able to counteract against new threats on Internet by monitoring them through data-consolidation over multiple sources. In parallel, in order to help the security teams, new investigation methods have to be built by empowering the interactivity and the visualization of the information (raw, summarized or consolidated data). To achieve that, it will be necessary to :
define and evaluate an holistic data-analytics approach for complex threats. The objective is to be able to cope with large quantity of heterogeneous data for extracting relevant knowledge about past and ongoing threats.
define methods for interactive and visual investigation of multiple sources of security data. This will consider similar methods that those under the first item but with a hard constraint on the reactivity and the limited quantity of information which can be dealt simultaneously by a human. Hence, these methods may rely on streaming analytics approaches, learning approaches to predict the next requests of the analysts to prepare the results (pre-processing and pre-rendering), combine and select information.
validate the proposed methods on different scenarios. In a first phase, the analysis will be mainly focused on individual data source microscopic analysis (monitoring DNS request to detect botnet activities, analyzing trafic flows to identify DDoS attacks, HTTP trafic for phishing detection, syslog events, security alerts...) before correlating and augmenting them to strengthen the results (monitoring DNS and analyzing flow for botnets, using fingerprinting methods to tag hosts and flows before analysis, traffic causality graphs...).
