LERNZIELECommunication services and applications are increasingly leveraging the wireless medium. Given this development, the importance of information and network security in the wireless
domain grows. Providing secure communication and network services in wireless environments
creates challenges that often differ considerably from traditional wired systems.
The students are able to describe, classify, and assess security goals and attacks on wireless
communication and in wireless networks. The students are able to describe the security architectures of different wireless systems and networks, in particular 802.11, GSM/UMTS, RFID,
ad hoc and sensor networks. They will are able to reason about security protocols for wireless
networks and can implement certain mechanisms to secure them.
CONTENTThe focus of this course are wireless environments such as wireless ad hoc, mesh, and
sensor networks. Central elements of the course are the wireless communication channel, wireless
network architectures and protocols. We will focus on the vulnerabilities, attack mechanisms
as well as detection, protection and prevention techniques in wireless networks.
The course starts with wireless fundamentals and wireless channel basics. This includes
jamming and modification attacks and respective countermeasures. It will then cover basic
security protocols and protection mechanisms in cellular, WiFi and multi-hop networks. This
will be followed by recent advances in the security of multi-hop networks. The considered
techniques include security in off-the-shelf wireless technologies (such as WiFi, WiMAX, Mobile
Telecommunication, RFID, Bluetooth) and in emerging wireless technologies (security in ad-hoc
networks, key management, sensor networks).
