This course is primarily designed for Ph.D. students, but is also open to M.S. students with the appropriatate background. The prerequisites for this class are CS 571 (Operating Systems) and CS 555 (Computer Networks). Some background in security and cryptography is desirable but not required. Students who have not taken these courses but believe they are capable of handling the requirements for the class can register for the class only after getting permission from the instructor. (Please see me or send me email if you fall in this category)
The lectures in class will be based mostly on the book "Security &
Cooperation in Wireless Networks" by Buttyan and Hubaux, and
articles in the
research literature. Students will be required to read assigned papers
and submit (electronically) a critical assessment of each paper before
its presentation in class, and participate in class discussions on each
paper. The first four or five lectures will be
presented by the instructor. Subsequently, each
student will be required to give two presentations based on one or more
papers from the reading list.
Each student will also have to complete a course project. This
project could be a programming project or a research-oriented project
depending on the interests and capabilities of the student.
