Name of the partner academic laboratory (so already known): I3S lab. (UMR7271) University of Nice Sophia-Antipolis / CNRS
Description of the theme of research (without any confidential character): BlackBoxSecu has recently developed an efficient and novel way to allow encrypted voice communications on voice channels (typ. walkie-talkies, GSM voice channels, plain old telephone, internet). To increase the security of the encryption, reduce the delays induced by the multiple steps, and optimize the energy efficiency, the purpose of this thesis would be to investigate a joint source-cryptographic-channel approach to merge the different blocks (compression, ciphering, modulation, etc.) into one block and reach higher system performance.
The thesis should be done at the premises of BlackBoxSecu and in collaboration with Prof. Bruno Martin and Dr. Jerome Lebrun of the I3S lab. of CNRS / Université Côte d’Azur
