Teaching Focus

Form next summer term 2017, our group will offer several courses with focus on system and software security.

We offer the new Lecture Secure Software Systems and the Seminar Hot Topics in System Security. In particular, our lecture will cover software exploitation techniques and defenses for Desktop PCs and mobile devices. In hands-on labs, the students will learn state-of-the-art exploitation techniques and apply them to sample programs. Further topics of this lecture are basic notions of system security, application sandboxing, and kernel security. The seminar allows students to examine and systematize a hot system security topic.
