Design and development of a Trusted User Interface for smartphones and tablets


As a Research & Development Engineer, you will interact with the team in charge of developing our embedded security solutions. More precisely, you will extend a secure operating system to add graphical capabilities and display rich content in a constrained environment. In order to achieve this goal, you will have to:

  • develop graphics and input drivers for the secure operating system,
  • make them available to secure applications through user interface APIs,
  • develop a demo application leveraging newly added UI capabilities.

Our secure operating system is built upon a microkernel running alongside another more user-friendly operating system such as Android. Smartphones and tablets have become so common in our daily lives, including sensitive activities such as banking, that they are now a target of choice for malwares. Some use cases require that user input be protected from ill-intentioned softwares that may have infected the main OS. The first objective is to enable the secure environment with basic graphics and input features. You will be in charge of developing drivers to receive events from the touchscreen and draw user interfaces on our reference platform.

The second objective of the internship will be to give secure applications the possibility to use these new features by developing a UI API layer.

The third objective will be to develop a proof of concept of a graphical application on top of the enhanced operating system for demo purposes.

This offer is for a 6-month internship located in our office in Sophia-Antipolis.
