Welcome to the Spring 2013
offering of the course Advanced Topics in Computer Security. This
course is open to graduate students in computer science,
engineering, advanced technology, and mathematics.
CS 656B is a
research oriented class that focuses on new and emerging areas
in computer security. In Spring 2013 we will investigate
different aspects of security in cloud computing, specially
those related to confidentiality, integrity and privacy issues.
end of the course, students should be able to:
- Understand some of the major security challenges of cloud
computing that act as hindrance to its widespread adoption.
- Learn about some of the newer techniques that scientists are
considering to protect cloud systems, their advantages and
- Learn how to critically evaluate security literature.
- Learn how to formulate and solve a research problem in
computer security and be able to present it.
The latter two course
objectives are two of the most important. A major purpose of CS
6xx courses is to train students how to perform research in a
given area and report on the results.
