Description of the job
Airbus Defence and Space CyberSecurity (Elancourt) is looking for an intern (m/f) for a 6-month internship.
You will join the Cryptography team.
Your role will be to develop solutions for secure integrated systems that perfectly meet the needs of our customers. Specifically, one of its objectives is to make the execution of operations secure (data encryption, authentication, identification, etc.) from those persons potentially seeking to do harm.
You will therefore have to install cryptographic primitives in security products. You will also help the company to improve the performance of its CyberDefense products.
In this context, one of the activities of the Cryptography team consists in effectively installing analysis algorithms in high-performance platforms. Amongst the products concerned, Intrusion Detection Systems (IDS) must deal with increasing volumes of network traffic and renewed threats leading to more and more complex processing on these packets. Furthermore, IDSs are faced with more and more encrypted (often basically with OpenSSL) and anonymised (notably via the use of Tor) traffic, which makes analyses more complex and damages their performance.
This internship will start on 01 March 2017 (subject to some flexibility).
