Programma dettagliato e risultati di apprendimento attesi
The course will deal with most of the practical and theoretical issues involved in designing a secure system, ranging from application-level security to host and network security. However, differently from the course offered at the M.Sc. level, we will cut short on the details of implementation, and add open research challenges and themes. Therefore, the course can be profitable even for students who already took courses on cryptography or security during the earlier levels of study.
The topics we will talk about are:
Attacker goals and motivations and the economics of cybercrime
Software vulnerabilities and their detection
Large-scale analysis of security data
Malware analysis, computer virology (theoretical and practical)
Hardware and embedded systems security
Cyberwarfare and cyberdefense; protection of critical infrastructures
The format of the course is partly composed of lectures, but mostly based on review and discussion of recent papers describing the latest research results in computer security.
Note Sulla Modalità di valutazione
Students will hold several short seminars during the course, reviewing literature assigned by the instructor. Alternatively to part of the load, a short research-oriented project can also be discussed.
