Quick clarification

Hi all,

I might have been a bit unclear about the papers given for each topic. Your first talk should focus on first paper in the list, the second on the second. Especially for explaining background information, you can rely on other sources, but for the "main... Read more

Hi all,

I might have been a bit unclear about the papers given for each topic. Your first talk should focus on first paper in the list, the second on the second. Especially for explaining background information, you can rely on other sources, but for the "main meat" of the talk, you should focus on the paper at hand (even it is outdated).

Just a quick reminder that you have to register in the LSF for the proseminar. This needs to happen within 3 weeks after the kickoff (May 26). Also note that unregistering also only works until that date.

You can now see the assigned topics in your student overview. Since one student did not show up for the kickoff, we dropped the first topic and will start with password managers. We will nevertheless keep the schedule the same, i.e., we simply have two meetings (19.5. and 23.6.) where only one paper will be presented.

Hi all,

welcome to the INPAWS proseminar. Sorry for the radio silence thus far, but we have been quite busy with DP3T in the last days.

For the kickoff tomorrow (14:00), we will use Zoom (and for all subsequent meetings as well). While the government has technically allowed the university to re-open, this is not something we consider adequate risk. We understand that Zoom isn't a perfect solution, but neither is Teams or Webex. If you are worried, you can use the Web client of Zoom.

You can find all relevant information about how to connect to the Zoom meeting at https://cms.cispa.saarland/infpapweb20/contents/view/2. In tomorrow's kick-off, we will present the topics and the associated advisors, and will ask you to choose from them until the end of the day. This allows us to quickly do the assignment and inform you about your topic.

Until then, please make sure that you Zoom setup is working properly. For now, most importantly, check that microphone and camera work. As Zoom recently changed things due to Zoom bombing, you have to have a (free) account with Zoom. So, please make sure that is also already set up.

See you all tomorrow!

Influential papers in Web Security

Note that all registrations must be done via the central system of the CS department.

 

Description

This proseminar is meant to provide students an overview over influential papers in the area of Web security. As a proseminar’s primary purpose is to learn presentation skills, the seminar will feature two presentations from each student.

Therefore, in the first half of the semester, we will have presentations of two topics each week (for 6 weeks). After each presentation, fellow students and lecturers will provide feedback on how to improve the presentation. This general feedback must then be taken into account for the second half of the semester, where again each student will present. To not bore the audience, though, this paper will be different from the previously presented one.

The *first presentations* will count towards 30% of the overall grade, the *second presentation* will count towards 70% of the overall grade. Attendance in the proseminar meetings is mandatory. At most one session can be skipped, after that you need to bring a doctor’s note to excuse your absence.

To ensure the quality of presentations is high, you have to set a meeting with the topic advisor one week before the first presentation to discuss the slides. For the second presentation, this meeting is optional, but if desired by the student must be a week before the meeting.

The date for the meeting is fixed to Tuesday, 14-16. After the kick-off on May 5, we will skip the meeting on May 12, so as to ensure sufficient time to prepare for the first set of presentations. From May 19 to July 21, we will then meet every week. All meetings will be virtualized via Zoom.

Requirements

Prior knowledge in Web Security is helpful, but not mandated.

Note that the talks must be given in English.
