Description of the master thesis

The need for and interest in cyber security has reached an all time high. Common tools for procuring and developing cyber secure systems are standards, guidelines and recommendations. For Swedish military approved cyber secure systems, KSF (Krav SäkerhetsFunktioner) is the guideline. But internationally there are, for instance, the NIST Cybersecurity Framework, the Common Criteria standard, ISO 27000 and more. Are all these standards the same, or are there significant differences? What are the strengths and weaknesses of KSF, when compared with international counterparts? These are some of the questions we would like our thesis student to answer.
