Security and Privacy

Michael Sonntag

Aim of the course "Security and Privacy" is to give an introduction to current problems of these two areas, and how they can be solved through technological means, e.g. secure software development. The technological, legal, and society limitations of these approaches are discussed as well. Students will be introduced to the foundations of these topics through lectures. Based on these, current research and developments are presented and explained. The course encompasses for example website security, the EU privacy framework, data retention and online searches.
