Topics for Master Theses, Bachelor Theses, and Projects
The focus is on distributed systems and databases, in particular on Adaptivity, Performance, Dependability and Security in current application areas, characterized by high dynamics and scaling, such as IoT, Big Data, Distributed Ledger (Blockchain) Technologies.
Applications include IoT (Internet of Things) such as Smart Environments (Smart Home, Smart Building, Smart City, SmartHealth ...) and Industrial IoT (Industry 4.0, Digital Twin); VANETs (Vehicular Ad-Hoc Networks) and SmartCars; Content Delivery Networks; Critical Infrastructures and SCADA (Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition) Systems; GNS (Global Sensor Networks); Cloud Gaming; Mobile Cloud Computing; Administration (Terminal Server, VDI - Virtual Desktop Infrastructure, Mobile Device Management ...).
In the field of big data, topics include In-memory Computing, Elasticity vs. Transactions, Failure Detection and Continous Inconsistency, Adaptive Energy Management and Green Computing, Scalable Replication. In the field of cloud and services computing, for example, PaaS (Platform as a Service, Docker, Kubernetes), NoSQL and NewSQL databases. System approaches include adaptive middleware and self-adaptiveness, self-balancing, the CAP principle and feedback computing, and emergence and self-organization.
This results in the following possible topics:
- IoT: Blockchain applications in IoT // Middleware Support for IoT // Control-as-a-Service (CaaS) // Security and Privacy Challenges in IoT // Bio-inspired Approaches for IoT (Artificial Immune Systems, Self-healing) // IoT Intrusion Detection Systems (IDS) // Performance vs Security vs Dependability in IoT // Energy Harvesting // Mobile Apps and Wearables // Mobile Augmented Reality // Web of Things, HTTP / 2
- Smart Cars and VANETS: C-ITS (Cooperative Intelligent Transport Systems) // Performance vs. Security (Privacy) vs. Dependability // Security in electronic toll systems
- Cloud and Services Computing: Microservices // Adaptive Energy Management and Green Computing: Impact on Performance, Security, and Dependability // Security-oriented Software Rejuvenation and Legacy Migration // RaaS - Ransomware-as-a-Service: Threat diversification and measurements // Security and Deployment in iPaaS (Integration of PaaS search for IFTTT, Zapier, elastic.io, built.io for End-User-Development / Service Mashups / Cloud Mashups) // Virtualization (VDI - Virtual Desktop Infrastructure) // Blockchain applications
- BigData: NewSQL and NoSQL - Comparison of different PaaS (Platform-as-a-Service) // Security vs. Performance in multi-tenancy PaaS Clouds // Security-SLA, Monitoring & Enforcement, ... // Elasticity and Auto-Scaling Comparison // Self-adaptive vs security
