Grundlagen der Cybersicherheit 1 WS 18

  • Lecture
  • Friday 14:00-16:00
  • GHH
  • Ben Stock

Students learn foundational security principles, basics of cryptography, network and network security, as well as privacy-preserving mechanisms. They learn to define security goals and are familiarized with the most common attack scenarios.
Note: This year's iteration will differ significantly from the previous year due to content being moved between Cysec 1 and 2.

Joint Advances in Web Security WS 18

  • Seminar
  • Kickoff: October 24th, 10:00
  • Secure Web Applications Group

In this seminar, students are exposed to recent high-quality research in the area of Web security. The seminar is comprised of a weekly meeting, in which every student has to present one paper from a given research area. Moreover, other students are expected to be familiar with the works as well, to allow for a meaning full discussion (i.e., a "reading group" situation).

Summer Term 2018

Web Security SS 18

  • Lecture
  • Wednesday, 10:00-12:00
  • E9.1, Lecture Hall
  • Ben Stock

In the summer term, we will offer a lecture on various aspects of Web security. More precisely, the course will cover client-and server-side security and also discuss infrastructure security and attacks.

Hacking SS 18

  • Proseminar
  • Every second Wednesday, 12:00 - 14:00

  • E9.1, Lecture Hall
  • Sorge, Stock, Bugiel, Nürnberger

Goal of this Proseminar is to give students a deeper understanding of the typical security problems and weaknesses that pervade all kinds of IT systems today. To provide a more solid understanding of the discussed attack techniques, this seminar strongly mixes theoretical and practical aspects. On the one hand, participants are conveyed the typical Proseminar learning contents (e.g., presentation techniques, etc.). On the other hand, the participants are required to also learn and apply established tools for exploiting and attacking IT systems in the context of capture-the-flag styled exercises.

Joint CISPA conference seminar WS 17

  • Seminar
  • Kickoff: October 20th
  • CISPA Researchers

In this CISPA-wide seminar, students will research and present state of the art on several research areas which are covered by the staff at CISPA. We will simulate a conference, i.e., students will submit their papers on specific deadline, will critically review other students' papers, and work in comments of others into their paper. Finally, we will organize a conference, where students present their work to all participants.
