Real-time monitoring is essential for threat detection and response. Many different security monitoring and intrusion detection approaches have been proposed in the state-of-the-art and several tools are available on the market. However, the complexity and dynamism of modern cloud-based distributed environments (e.g., Kubernetes clusters) pose a critical challenge to such tools, which are limited in terms of scalability and visibility and do not allow for prompt detection of cyberattacks. Additionally, in such distributed architectures it is crucial to correlate insights (e.g., indicators of compromise) observed in multiple nodes to track lateral movement, which existing approaches cannot effectively do.
The goal of this PhD Project is to research novel methodologies to securely monitor distributed environments, ultimately aiming at threat detection, automating the extraction, learning, and correlation of cyber threat intelligence (CTI), and reasoning about effective and transferable threat response strategies.

About the organisation
The faculty of Electrical Engineering, Mathematics and Computer Science (EEMCS) uses mathematics, electronics and computer technology to contribute to the development of Information and Communication Technology (ICT). With ICT present in almost every device and product we use nowadays, we embrace our role as contributors to a broad range of societal activities and as pioneers of tomorrow's digital society. As part of a people-first tech university that aims to shape society, individuals and connections, our faculty works together intensively with industrial partners and researchers in the Netherlands and abroad, and conducts extensive research for external commissioning parties and funders. Our research has a high profile both in the Netherlands and internationally. It has been accommodated in three multidisciplinary UT research institutes: Mesa+ Institute, TechMed Centre and Digital Society Institute.
