New courses being offered
Advanced Malware Forensics & Anti-Forensics: In this course, students will be introduced to state-of-the-art techniques for malware analysis, detection, and anti-forensics. Students will also explore current research in the malware domain to gain perspective on the different problems being addressed in the area and the solutions being proposed.
Advances topic in Wireless Security: This research-elective graduate course focuses on vulnerabilities, attacks, and mitigation techniques in current and emerging wireless systems and protocols. The goal is to provide the students with a deep understanding of security issues in wireless systems and an insight into recent research trends. The students also gain a research experience by working on a research project that involves software-defined radio implementation. The course begins with an overview of wireless communications fundamentals. We then study advanced topics in wireless security, including Wi-Fi security, security at physical-layer, reactive jamming and friendly jamming, covert communications, security issues in IoT and vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) communications, 4G/LTE cellular networks, etc
Anonymity & Tor: In this research-based course, students will learn about the design of Tor and other anonymity systems and explore state-of-the-art ideas on how to make Tor faster and more secure.
Innovation in National Security: Students learn methods in structured interview, requirements elicitation, and lean launchpad while solving real problems for the United States and Allied governments. In this course, students learn how to systematically probe and attack problems, ultimately leading to a well-grounded opportunity for follow-on commercialization and/or academic research.
