Short Bio

Jörg Daubert studied computer science with a focus on IT management until 2011. In 2016, he obtained his Ph.D. with the thesis on "Anonymous Publish/Subscribe Overlays" at Technische Universität in Darmstadt. Since 2014 he is acting as Area Head of the "Secure Smart Infrastructures" group; since 2016 he is joint PostDoc and Area Head of the "Smart Protection in Infrastructures and Networks" (SPIN) group with 9 researchers within the Telecooperation Lab under Prof. Mühlhäuser in Darmstadt. Starting 2016, Jörg Daubert is also coordinating the research training group (doctoral college) "Privacy and Trust for Mobile Users" with 11 Ph.D. student positions.

Jörg Daubert also worked in industrial research for AGT International, a major industry player in Internet of Things and data analytics, from 2011 to 2015 and is freelancing as an IT consultant from 2011 onwards.

Topics for Bachelor and Master Theses

Please have a look at https://www.tk.informatik.tu-darmstadt.de/de/teaching/abschlussarbeiten-d/ for open theses. We often offer a selection of challenging topics in the area of privacy-preserving communication networks. The focus can be either theoretical – developing attack and protection concepts, or practical – analyzing the aforementioned attacks and concepts via simulation. You can write the thesis in English or German.

Analyzing Attacks and Countermeasures for Participant Deanonymization of Anonymous Publish-Subscribe

Bachelor Thesis


Micro-blogging with #tags is one of the most used applications of the pub-sub pattern. Publish-subscribe systems based on peer-2-peer are scalable and free of single points of failure. Therefore, such systems do not depend on the availability of a single server and are censorship resistant. Confidentiality can be achieved by using encryption and private matching. Anonymity however, still remains a challenge.

In case a participant gets compromised, the adversary gains access to all key material. Hence, the adversary can receive messages, and send valid messages as well. This raises the question, how much such an adversary can learn about its environment and other participants? Who publishes with a certain #tag, and who reads those messages?

In this thesis, you will get the opportunity to implement an inside adversary into an OMNeT++ simulation of a P2P-based pub-sub system. You will evaluate adversary strategies and develop potential counter measures against such attacks.
