Hello everyone, 

TLDR; 

  • Exam Tomorrow Jul 11th at 2 pm in CISPA, E9 1, room 0.05. Be present in the room by 1:45 pm
  • Project 2 submission instructions (deadline Jul 22).
  • Project 3 is now available (deadline Aug 16). WARNING: real-life experiment takes real time.  

 

We have a couple of Public Announcements today. 

  • The exam will take place tomorrow Jul 11th in CISPA, E9 1, room 0.05 (i.e., the lecture hall where the class was held). Please try to be present in the room by 1:45 pm as we will start the exam directly at 2 pm. The exam will last for two hours. You do not need a calculator.  You can bring up to 5 clearly marked handwritten sheets of A4 paper (10 sides) with you to the exam.

 

  • The submission instructions for Project 2 are as follows:
    • To submit your solution for Project 2, push your code to your assigned repository at lab-pets.privacy-preserving.systems in the branch project2. You should be able to see the results of the example test cases in the GitLab pipeline after your push.
    • Make sure to commit and push before the deadline.
    • Submit your report on CMS before the deadline. 

 

  • We have published the third and final project in the material section. The deadline is Aug 16th. 

You can find the handout, report template, and the link to the skeleton code in the Materials sections on CMS. To start, first read carefully through the project handout, and the skeleton README. You can then follow the instructions in the skeleton README to setup the environment and pull the skeleton code, and begin working on the project.

  • To submit your code, push your code to your assigned repository in the branch project3. Note that no pipeline is configured for this project, so it is normal to see no feedback from the pipeline (e.g. green ticks).
  • To submit your report, upload it in the CMS.
  • Make sure you observe the deadline.

Note that because this project involves some real-life measurements, it is more time-consuming than the other projects; please consider starting early enough.

 

All the best with the final preparation for the exam and see you tomorrow at 1:45 pm.

Project 2 skeleton update

Written on 20.06.24 by Sylvain Chatel

Hello Everyone,

Thanks to some eagle eyes and your feedback, we fixed some unclarities in the skeleton and handout.

We have updated the skeleton repo and it is accessible at https://lab-pets.privacy-preserving.systems/pets24/ref/ref/-/tree/project2/ (with your CMS credentials via the Login with… Read more

Hello Everyone,

Thanks to some eagle eyes and your feedback, we fixed some unclarities in the skeleton and handout.

We have updated the skeleton repo and it is accessible at https://lab-pets.privacy-preserving.systems/pets24/ref/ref/-/tree/project2/ (with your CMS credentials via the Login with Github button)

You will find the new version and also in the history the original version that was on CMS (original commit 20ca6867 and the new version ff9101e1).

We clarified both the skeleton and the tests but, to do so, we had to modify slightly the API.

Of course, for those of you who have already made significant progress/finished, you can submit either version.

Otherwise, consider taking a look at this new version. 

Thanks
