I will begin studying at Kings college studying advanced Cyber Security, I have a passion for cryptography I can particularly express what, I just have found this topic so interesting for many years now, I have worked in research which was integrating the algorithms (PQ round 3) into OpenSSL and some other stacks. I really like some of the PQ algorithms but I am unsure of a path to take for a thesis idea.

Any suggestions or pointers or any papers anyone have found interesting can you link for some inspiration?

    $\begingroup$ I'd advise to check with faculty members, they often advertise (on their group's websites, or in conversation) potential topics which would be a good fit for doing a MSc thesis within their respective research groups. While I'm not familiar with the UK system, I'd be surprised if they expect you to come up with an idea for a thesis fully on your own. If at all, this question would probably be a better fit for meta.crypto rather than here. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ From my experience if you want to come up with your own thesis topic you need about 6 months of research reviewing the current bibligoraphy state of a specific field and this is if your direction don't require any extra mathematical knowledge if you want to come up with your own thesis idea. A professor that is active in research typically already possess this context and can save you time but you will be a bit more constrained about what you can do that he will support you theoretically and practically. By professor I mean his whole research team. $\endgroup$

Inspiration: Watch Peter Gregory's TED talk in Silicon Valley (the comedy), S1E1. You can easily achieve £100/hr contracting in the Midlands if you have the chutzpah to make up a CV and pull it off. More in London. Consider that the UK doesn't reward education.
