We offer a Bachelor and a Master seminar on Information Security. The seminar will focus on various security and privacy aspects in cryptocurrencies and decentralized platforms, security aspects of machine learning platforms, as well as on the security of secure hardware, such as Trusted Execution Environments.

Students are expected to investigate a narrow topic based on recently published literature. The investigation findings are to be included in a report and presented during the class.

We will organize the seminar in the spirit of a scientific conference. Besides writing a report on the selected topic, students are expected to constructively review each other’s reports – akin the peer-review system commonly used in current academic conferences.

At the end of this seminar, students will be able to study a narrowly-defined topic, understand basic insights into best research trends and practices in that topic, and write concise scientific reports with respect to their findings. Students will also develop experience in giving scientific presentations, and get valuable insights into peer-reviewing.
Students will be evaluated based on the quality of their report, as well as on their presentation skills. Allocation of seminar topics is done during the kick-off event.
