The Topics for the Seminar

The seminar's topics are going to be based on Ross Andresson's book ``Security Engineering''. After the introduction, each week, students will give a presentation of one of the chapters of the book.
Chapter Topic
2 Usability and Psychology
8 Multilevel Security
9 Multilateral Security
15 Biometrics
16 Physical Tamper Resistance
18 API Security
21 Network Attack and Defense
22 Copyright and DRM
23 The Bleeding Edge
26 System Evaluation and Assurance

One week before your presentation, you must present your talk to Orr. Without doing so, you will not be able to present your talk to the class, and would fail.

Please note that you must send slides in PDF format after your presentation to Orr, for the lecture to be counted for.
