We will start with the first lecture in Physical-Layer Security tomorrow, Friday 22.4.22 at 12.15pm. The format will be hybrid, i.e. we will be teaching in the CISPA lecture hall, and stream via Zoom Webinar (link). We start with an introduction and also announce administrative details on the class. Hope to see many of you tomorrow in the lecture hall (w/ mask please) and webinar!
The lecture will take place every Friday from 12.15-13.45pm, starting April
15 22 (due to holiday on 15). It will be taught by Mridula Singh and Nils Ole Tippenhauer. Mridula will cover roughly the first half focusing on physical-layer wireless security, and Nils will focus on Cyber-Physical Systems/ Industrial Control Systems security in the second half. We currently plan to have a mix of interactive lectures via Zoom, and prepared videos. In addition, there will be practical exercises using Linux w/ GNUradio and other tools.
This lecture is an advanced lecture in Physical-Layer Security. Previous knowledge from CySec1 and CySec2, or Security is recommended. While the lecture will touch physical-layer concepts such as (wireless) signals, no background in that area is assumed. The lecture will cover thee main topic areas: attacks (and countermeasures) that leverage physical channels (e.g., side-channel attacks), attacks (and countermeasures) involving wireless communications (e.g., jamming, manipulation, and forwarding), and security for cyber-physical systems (such as industrial control systems).
The lecture will be complemented by 6 exercises (details TBD). Due to related effort, this course can only accommodate up to 50 students.
The tenative date for the final examination is 9.9.22 at 10am at the CISPA lecture hall.
