(Joint with Sadie Creese)

Technology-layer social networks: investigate the potential to identify relationships between people via technology metadata - which machines their machines are "friendly" with. Research will involve identification of all metadata available from the network layer, app layers and the data layer, development of appropriate relationship models, and practical experimentation / forensic-style work exploring how to extract relationships between technologies and identities. Appropriate for 4th year undergraduates or MSc.
