Security on the Internet

Corresponding entry in Aachen Campus, Bonn University (Lecture, Tutorial).

Responsible

Prof. Dr. Joachim von zur Gathen

Lecture

Michael Nüsken

Tutorial

Daniel Loebenberger

Time & Place

First meeting: Tuesday, 28 October 2008.

Allocation

4+2 SWS, 8 credits. Optionally, 3+2 SWS, 6 credits.

Successful completion of the course yields 8 credit points. For students who only want 6 credit points, a breakpoint at about 3/4 of the teaching time will be defined, and only the course material up to that point will be relevant for their exams and grades.

Prerequisites

Basic knowledge in cryptography might be helpful. Yet, this is not required.

Contents

This course is about various aspects of security in the internet.

In the internet a large variety of protocols ("chatting programs") are in use to make this or that `secure'. VPN, IPsec, SSL, PKI, PGP are just a few tokens that need explanations. We will try to understand a little of that and how things are used and made available.

Notes and Exercises

The lecture notes (PDF) contain all slides from the course. Now (since 16 February) including pictures of your posters.

Furthermore, Daniel Rosenthal provides his (non-authorized, non-validated) personal notes.
