Trustwave Singtel and the National University of Singapore (NUS) are partnering in a corporate research lab hosted at NUS and focusing broadly on cyber security.

The lab is bringing together these two leading organizations in Singapore with complimentary capabilities in cyber security to address a broad array of the most critical challenges in cyber security for Singapore industry and society. The lab will be directed by Prof David S. Rosenblum from NUS along with Mr Ho Pun from Singtel. The research activities of the lab will be supervised by two dozen PIs from SoC, FOE and CQT, in collaboration with engineers and researchers from Singtel. The result will be the creation and commercialization of a significant and diverse body of new technologies in cyber security, along with the training of significant numbers of new PhDs, researchers and engineers in cyber security. Researchers with good performance will have the opportunity to join Singtel after their stints with the Lab. There is also a possibility for researchers to receive a share of royalties for the IP they produce.

Project Details

The lab will conduct research in four broad areas of cyber security having strategic relevance to Singtel’s business:

  • Predictive Security Analytics
  • Network, Data and Cloud Security
  • Internet-of-Things and Industrial Control Systems
  • Future-Ready Cyber Security Systems

In addition, the lab will opportunistically expand its research to cover other emerging important problem areas and Singtel business objectives as appropriate.

The Intern will work in a team with research fellows to implement prototype of secure applications and services for mobile (iOS and/or Android) and PC platforms (Windows and Linux). 

Candidates with the following skills or experiences have priority:

  • Good programming skills (in C/C++, Java or others relevant languages) and software development experience.
  • Network programming (e.g. sockets).
  • With the help of research fellows, understand security and cryptography algorithms to some extent, in order to implement the algorithms.
  • Good team player and good communication skills.
  • Encouraged to be involved in system and algorithm design together with research fellows, if capable. Opportunity to co-author research papers with research fellows will be provided.
  • Previous experience in mobile development or Intel SGX is a plus.
  • Plan to develop a career in cyber security and eager to learn new relevant skills/knowledge in this domain.
  • Background knowledge in cyber security or cryptography is NOT a must.
  • Candidates including polytechnic, undergraduates, masters and PhD students are welcome to apply.
