Networked systems are becoming an increasingly prevalent and, in some cases, intrusive features in our everyday lives. Examples include online social networks, medical information systems, distributed sensor networks, and context aware applications. While these systems certainly provide users with many direct and indirect benefits, they also expose potentially sensitive personal and corporate data to risks such as unauthorized disclosure or unintended use (e.g., profiling).
Security is an increasingly cross-cutting research area, and papers will be chosen from a wide range of conferences. I encourage any interested students to enroll. Background will be provided through reading assignments and in-class discussion.
Prerequisites: Graduate standing.
