* Seminar 1: INFORMATION SECURITY BASICS   (June 14-15)

  Instructors: Prof. David Basin and Prof. Ueli Maurer, ETH Zurich

 

This seminar provides an in-depth coverage of Information Security And Cryptography from both a conceptual and application-oriented viewpoint. At the same time, the mathematical, algorithmic, protocol- specific, and system-oriented aspects are explained in a way under- standable to a wide audience. This includes the foundations needed to understand the different approaches, a critical look at the state-of- the-art, and a perspective on future security technologies.

 

* Seminar 2: MODERN ADVANCED CRYPTOGRAPHY  (June 16-17)

  Instructor: Prof. Ueli Maurer, ETH Zurich

 

This seminar presents modern cryptography, with its many facets, in a unique and coherent manner, with an emphasis on simplicity and on explaining concepts at the right level of abstraction.

Connections between subfields are highlighted and the most relevant Research developments of the past years are covered and placed into context. The seminar assumes some familiarity with basic at a conceptual level (including symmetric cryptosystems, hash functions, public-key encryption, and digital signatures) and with basic cryptographic algorithm (such as RSA).

 

* Seminar 3: BUILDING SECURE SOFTWARE SYSTEMS  (June 16-17)

  Instructors: Prof. David Basin, ETH Zurich and

                      Dr. Torsten Lodderstedt, Syracom Consulting

 

This seminar presents sound methods that can be used to build and evaluate security-critical software systems. The focus is on the interplay between two areas: Software Engineering and Information Security. The role of security in all phases of software-development Is examined, including requirements analysis, risk analysis, design, implementation, and testing, as well as verification and certification.

In each phase, relevant concept, methods, and tools are covered.

The basic seminar has been designed as ideal preparation for the two more specialized seminars, which run in parallel.
