Master Thesis: Design and Evaluation of a Security System for Real-Time Localization (m/f/div)



NXP Semiconductors enables secure connections and infrastructure for a smarter world, advancing solutions that make lives easier, better and safer. As the world leader in secure connectivity solutions for embedded applications, we are driving innovation in the secure connected vehicle, end-to-end security & privacy and smart connected solutions markets.

Scope: Real time localization systems (RTLS) rely on the processing of fundamental physical properties like distance and/or angle between objects. The accuracy of such an RTLS depends on the underlying measurements but also protection against RF signal manipulation at physical and logical level. This protection requires a state-of-the-art security system. In this master thesis, the impact of the security system shall be evaluated related to system/use-case performance and complexity.


  • Familiarization with the NXP RTLS integrated circuits (ICs) representing a fully coherent implementation of the IEEE 802.15.4a including the required security protocols and security architecture
  • Literature research on secure element application architecture and underlying implementation methods as well as RF secure channel methods
  • Design and Implementation of the studied secure application concept and integration into a target RTLS system
  • Evaluation of performance and architecture trade-offs

Your Profile:

  • Master student in electrical or software engineering or similar studies
  • Knowledge of embedded software architectures, basics in cryptographic protocols
  • Personal engagement and eagerness to learn, good communication skills in English
  • Experience with Java and C as well as related development tools
  • Beneficial skills in Java Card application design

For the successful completion of the Master Thesis you will receive a remuneration of a one-time payment of EUR 5.150, - gross.

Additional you will get a bonus of EUR 2.000, - gross if you receive an excellent grade "Sehr gut" for your Thesis.
