This course introduces methods and technologies for establishing trust in modern computing systems, including classic approaches (e.g., boot chain-of-trust, secure boot, exception/privilege levels, and Trusted Platform Modules - TPMs) and more recent trusted execution architectures that enable the creation of hardware-isolated secure sub-domains (e.g., ARM TrustZone) and enclaved sub-process execution (e.g., Intel Secure Guard eXtensions - SGX). The course also includes a list of special topics within trusted computing discussing new developments in the field.

This course explores current topics in computing security. It is intended as a place holder course for faculty to experiment new course offerings in Computing Security undergraduate program. Course specific details change with respect to each specific focal area proposed by faculty.
CSEC-630
3 Credits
This course covers some of the foundational technologies for establishing trust in modern computing systems, including classic methods (e.g., boot chain-of-trust, secure boot, exception/privilege levels, and Trusted Platform Modules - TPMs) and more recent trusted computing architectures such as ARM TrustZone and Intel Secure Guard eXtensions (SGX), which are increasingly popular and widely adopted in both academic research and industry. The latter part of the course will touch upon more advanced and research-oriented aspects in the intersection of trusted computing and various realms of Computing Security & Privacy. A key component of the course will be an exploratory research project aiming to use trusted computing technologies to address a security/privacy problem. To be successful in this course students should be knowledgeable in applied cryptography and basic security technologies.

As the world becomes more and more connected as ever before via various kinds of devices and systems on the Internet, called the Internet of Things (IoT), the associated security and privacy-related issues also become increasingly challenging. This course is designed for students who wish to advance their knowledge in the Internet of Things security. It provides students opportunities to explore security and privacy-related issues manifested by various kinds of IoT devices and systems such as sensors, sensor networks, SCADA systems, vehicular systems, consumer IoT devices, etc.
